Central Valley High School continued its annual tradition of honoring its spring sports athletes, but changed the format due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“We were able to have fall and winter awards nights,” Hawks’ Athletic Director Greg Magni said. “The spring couldn’t be held here. We’re in unpredictable times. It’s been a challenge for everyone.”
Participation certificates, varsity letters, letterman patches, team awards and pictures were handed out via drive-thru pickup last Friday at Central Valley.
“We wanted to let the kids know we appreciate them and all the work they put in,” Magni said. “They got everything we would have normally given them in-person.”
