This past week was the Mount Union ESPYs (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly). Usually this awards show is on ESPN but for the past 4 or 5 years, Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has hosted them at Mount Union. Last year I was unable to attend but all I know is that the wrestling team had a respectable amount of individual and team awards. This year it seemed that women’s basketball and volleyball had the majority of awards.
Being a member of SAAC, I presented an award. With Dom, the other wrestling representative for SAAC, we presented the Comeback Athlete Award. This was my first time ever presenting an award so I felt a different type of honor.
I can’t wait for the upcoming ESPYs just because it was a fun and honoring award show. Hopefully within the next two years, I’ll be receiving an award as well.
