Rams Athletics waves goodbye to outgoing Grade 12 athletes

The Lacombe Composite High School Rams recently announced their annual athletics awards.

Typically, an awards night would be held at LCHS but due to COVID-19 — this year’s award recipients were announced digitally.

“In one of the most unprecedented turn of events we have or may ever experience our athletics season was sadly brought to an abrupt end. Though we were not able to compete in all of our regular sporting events we felt it was necessary to still recognize the efforts of our tremendous Rams athletes,” LCHS Athletic Director Michael Sonnenberg said in the presentation.

Sonnenberg thanked athletes, parents and volunteer coaches for their commitment to Rams athletics.

“The lessons you teach go far beyond the walls of our gym and I thank you once again for being tremendous role models for all of our LCHS athletes,” he said.

Sonnenberg also thanked the departing Grade 12 Rams for their passion and commitment to their school.

“The responsibility that is placed on you when managing academics and athletics simultaneously is a transferable skill that will make you amazing leaders in the future. Thank you for all the many hours you have put into our program, representing our school with Ram Pride and integrity,” he said.

Big winners for the season were Julia Cunningham, Nina Secretario and Jonah Hennig who took home the Ram Award, which goes to athletes who “participated and excelled in a number of school based sports throughout their high school athletic career, kept high academic standards and has exemplified leadership in sport and citizenship within the school and the community.”

For Rams Golf, Daniel Humbke took home Outstanding Male Golfer and the Outstanding Female Golfer was Alyssa Kanngiesser.

In cross-country Quinn Eberts was the Outstanding Male Runner and Jenica Swarts too home Outstanding Female Runner.

For Girls JV Volleyball, Brie Oatway was the MVP and Dina Vlahos was the MIP. For the senior girls, Tiffany Ronald won MVP, Jasmine Bergman won MIP and Julia Cunningham was the Short Award Winner.

For the JV Boys Volleyball team, Jacob C. Baker won MVP and Gage Foley was the MIP. For the senior boys, Carson Webb won MVP and Carson Prins won MIP.

Kelli Perez was the MVP for the JV Girls Basketball team and Olivia Graves won the Heart and Hustle Award. Peighton Melton won MVP for the senior girls and Jenica Swartz won MIP.

Tanner Park was the JV Boys Basketball MVP and Isaac lamb took home MIP. For the senior boys, Jared Gamble was the MVP and Carson Prins received the MIP award.

Rylan Conrad was the Outstanding Male Curler and Jessica Weibe swept up the Outstanding Female Curler Award.

Unfortunately the Rams Rugby, soccer and Badminton teams did not get to compete, but the coaching staffs did thank all of their graduating players and are looking forward to next season.

Rams Football award winners were announced earlier this year.

Sonnenberg thanked all of the athletes for their contributions.

“Your legacy will live on and the meaning of being a Rams Athlete will remain intact due to your efforts. Congratulations to all the award winners. We are so proud of your accomplishments,” he said.
