Sports Awards held this month
It’s time again to support the community and local student athletes for their hard work and dedication to athletics. Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property Southwest Florida is an official Bronze sponsor of the upcoming Southwest Florida Sports Awards being held on May 24 at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall. The awards honor the most elite athletes in Southwest Florida High School sports including football, cross country, volleyball, golf, swimming, basketball, soccer, wrestling, lacrosse, tennis, track, baseball, softball and bowling.
How Winners are Chosen
The event is hosted by the The News-Press and Naples Daily News. After each high school season, both publications send area coaches a nomination form to select and rank players for first teams, second team and honorable mention. From the teams selected, three athletes are named finalists for player of the year.
This is a wonderful event and a great opportunity to highlight the accomplishments of young athletes and their outstanding efforts. Money raised from sponsorships helps to underwrite the cost of attendance for an athlete and a family member. This year’s event includes a special appearance by Steve Spurrier, former head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks, who will participate in the question and answer portion of the event.
Tickets to the event are $25 per person and can be purchased by visiting http://swfloridasportsawards.com. Please join us in celebrating these great young athletes!
