Athletics Program Celebrates Successful Year with Special Awards Ceremony
Athletics Program Celebrates Successful Year with Special Awards Ceremony

After a successful year that saw teams compete for and win championships in a soccer, basketball and volleyball, the UNIS Athletics program held its annual Tut House awards ceremony. Each team had players recognized for being the Most Valuable Player, the Most Improved, and for team Spirit.

Later in the presentation, Athletic Director Duncan Davison took a moment to honor Coach Georges Barjoud, who is retiring after 30 years. Barjoud is credited with building the school's successful volleyball program. After he was introduced, Barjoud thanked everyone and wished his players' and fellow coaches success in the future.

The importance of commitment and support for the entire Athletics program was a key part of this year's event. This theme was highlighted when the department decided to recognize several parents who had played a big role in helping and cheering on the teams over the years. In addition, for the first time, students who played sports in the fall, winter, and spring seasons were given a special award to recognize their dedication to the program. Students who played three sports each of the last two years were given a separate recognition to celebrate their work.

To close out the ceremony the Student-Athlete of the Year awards were presented. Here is a complete list of team and individual award winners:
