The Lakeland College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) recently hosted the inaugural all-sport spring party, an end-of-year celebration of Muskie athletics.
By all accounts the event was a success, as athletes enjoyed the dodge ball tournament and lip sync and dance contests. The party also included the presentation of senior and end of year awards.
Josh Regal, a senior point guard from Suring, Wis., was named the T.W. Hoernemann award recipient. The T.W. Hoernemann award is presented annually to the senior basketball player who best exhibits strength, courage and perseverance in the following categories: academic excellence, basketball proficiency, fighting spirit, exemplary conduct on and off the court, campus leadership, character and a winning attitude.
Tony Faller, a senior safety from Oostburg, Wis., was named the Pat Curran award winner for being the senior football player who best combined football and academic excellence.
Senior women's tennis star Nicole Shavlik (Two Rivers, Wis.) received the Ellen Kregel award. This award is presented to the upper class student-athlete with the highest grade point average. Other factors include being a good team representative and campus community contributions.
The man and woman of the year awards were presented to the top male and female student-athlete who best represented the school in the classroom, on the field and in the community.
Woman of the year is Jenny LaLuzerne, a junior outfielder from Sturgeon Bay, Wis. LaLuzerne is a three-year starter for the Muskie softball team and a leader on the Lakeland campus. Her leadership among her peers and her drive to make a difference within in the community is an example for all students. She exemplifies the true spirit of involvement at Lakeland College.
Man of the year is Robby Frias, a senior wrestler from Oak Lawn, Ill. Frias has been an outstanding representative of "all things Lakeland." He has epitomized what is means to be a student-athlete while also remaining actively involved in both the campus and surrounding communities.
Justin Reminger, a member of the baseball team, won the lip sync and dance competition over the women's basketball team, while team Old Skool, the staff team, won the dodge ball tournament.
