MHS Senior Awards Banquet

By Staff | Jun 3, 2009

The Magnolia Athletic Boosters Association sponsored the 2008-09 First Senior Sports Banquet Sunday, May 31 at the school to show their appreciation to all the coaches, senior athletes and the athletes’ parents for their contributions to the excellent athletic programs at Magnolia.

The dinner was catered by the Court Restaurant.

This banquet replaces the former All Sports Banquet so the night could belong to the graduating seniors and their families. It allowed coaches to talk about their seniors and the accomplishments that they have made during their high school careers. The underclassmen got their awards on Class Day last week.

The Gerald Hammel Award, sponsored by the New Martinsville Moose Club, was presented to Corinne Murdock and Andrew Robinson as the best female and male athletes.

The Charlie Morris Grasshopper League Memorial Scholarship also went to Murdock and Robinson. The Edgar Rush Baseball Scholarship went to Robinson and the New Martinsville Junior Football Awards went to Tyler Hanna and Mackenzie Walker.

Brittany Batton and Martin Whiteman took home the Magnolia Athletic Boosters Scholarship Award.
