SportsTown Awards Success

Published: June 02, 2017

The second annual SportsTown Awards, presented by the Eugene, Cascades & Coast Sports Commission was met with success. Returning master of ceremonies Jordan Kent made the night one to remember at the Valley River Inn in Eugene. Awards included Male and Female Student Athlete of the Year, Athletic Trainer of the Year, Athlete with Heart, Sustainable Sports Event of the Year, Inspirational Coach of the Year, Sports Promotion of the Year, Fan of the Year, Mascot of the Year and the SportsTown Legacy Award.

An interactive Student Nominee Recognition Exhibit was a new addition, adding extra recognition to the student athletes nominated for Male and Female Student Athlete of the Year. Attendees used an app to view videos talking about their many accomplishments. The exhibit was sponsored by FastSigns and Long’s Meat Market.
