The Knox Morrow Athletic Conference released its all-league award winners for the spring season recently.

In addition, the KMAC recognizes one senior in every sport as an All-Academic winner. The All-Academic winner must have a GPA of at least 3.5.

Anyone interested in becoming an official for high school or middle school football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, baseball or softball, please email [email protected] or text your name to 614-989-5070. There is a partial reimbursement of the officiating dues available for people interesting in becoming an official who live in Knox or Morrow counties.

Local competitors swept the athlete of the year awards this spring. Mack Anglin was the Player of the Year for Highland in baseball, while Cardington’s Casey Bertke was Player of the Year in softball. In girls’ track, Mount Gilead’s Allison Johnson was the Runner of the Year and teammate Kelsey Kennon was Field Athlete of the Year. MG also swept the boys’ track awards, with Connor Page being named the Runner of the Year and Micah Tuggle was selected as Field Athlete of the Year.

Cardington softball coach Tod Brininger was named the Coach of the Year in that sport. Three athletes also received All-Academic honors, as Tate Tobin of Highland and Ryland Thomas of Northmor shared it for baseball and Northmor’s Lily Tate was the winner of that award in softball.
