It’s not too late to place your nominations for the 2017 Varsity Maine Awards. But don’t wait too long. We’re taking entries through March 8.
The awards show, sponsored by the Maine Sunday Telegram, celebrates the best in high school sports – players, coaches, teams and even fans – from around the state. The show will be held on May 2 at the Costello Sports Complex at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham.
So who can make a nomination? Coaches. Teammates. Parents. Athletic directors. Neighbors. Grandparents. Anyone who wants to highlight the achievements of those involved in Maine high school sports.
Here is a look at some of the award categories. Do you know someone who fits any of these descriptions? Then let us know by making a nomination.
THE COACH OF THE YEAR
The best coaches can’t be measured by victories alone. Which one has made the biggest impact on students while forging a winning tradition?
THE ACADEMIC ACE
We’re looking for an athlete who excels in the classroom. Who is tops among his or her peers when it comes to academic excellence?
THE ROLE MODEL
Every team has one: We’re looking for an athlete who goes above and beyond to help younger team members succeed.
THE LOUDEST AND PROUDEST
Talk about school pride: We’re looking for the No. 1 fan – whether it’s a parent, family member, student or booster who cheers on his or her team at home games and on the road.
