2nd Annual Awards Night Set For May 15
LouisvilleCatholicSports.com will recognize year's best
Since its inception in 2010, LouisvilleCatholicSports.com has worked tirelessly to become a credible resource for Louisville area Catholic sports fans by providing daily content, news, photos and more through the website and a slew of social media portals.
But at the core of the LCS mission has been the ultimate goal of recognizing the best that Catholic school teams, student-athletes, coachces, etc. have to offer on and off the field.
Continuing to place that mission on the largest stage possible, LouisvilleCatholicSports.com will hold its second annual Awards Night on Tuesday, May 15 at Audubon Country Club in an effort to bring together schools, business and devoted members of the Catholic community to recognize those boys and girls, men and women who carry the flag and promote the values that the Catholic athletic foundation is built upon.
The Awards Night, which is co-sponsored by Publishers Press and Kentucky Telco Federal Credit Union, will feature five separate awards that cover all aspects of sport - balanced athletes, journalism, a focus on community service, team managers and student-athletes who have overcome difficult circumstances to overcome and inspire others.
Last year's event was extremely successful and LouisvilleCatholicSports.com is looking forward to another exemplary night of fun, fellowship and fruitful recognition of deserving Catholic student-athletes.
