'09 ORVC Winter Sports Awards Banquet held in Rising Sun

Gary Franklin, Sports Writer

On Wednesday evening, March 11, the ORVC held its annual winter sports awards banquet. With Rising Sun HS in charge of ORVC events this year, as a change of pace, the location was moved to the Rising Sun Community Center and the former buffet was replaced by a catered meal. A very nice setting and a fine meal made for a positive evening's entertainment highlighted by some of the areas finest athletes being rewarded for their efforts.
Emceeing the affair was Rising Sun High School Athletic Director and Assistant Principal Noel Bostic. His first call to order to get the program underway was a call for prayer before the catered meal. Following the meal, Bostic again called the program to order and elaborated on some of the accomplishmnts of individuals in attendance.
The girls were first called (individually in alphabetical order) to the podium to receive a certificate, where RSHS Principal Keith Majewski placed a ribbon around each of their necks. The young ladies were selected by ORVC coaches voting to be part of the All-Conference team, with the stipulation that a coach could not vote for his or her own player, therefore making those named the consensus of the whole conference as a unit.
(Boys selection was also done in this manner).
