Cardigan’s Fall Sports Awards 2022

Cardigan's Fall Sports Awards

Before students departed for Thanksgiving break, we gathered to celebrate a successful fall season of athletics at the Fall Sports Awards Ceremony. The ceremony recognized those student-athletes who went above and beyond in their athletic skills, displayed sportsmanship on and off the field, were dedicated members of their team, and upheld Cardigan’s Core Values

With 14 teams to choose from and over 30 coaches helping them to advance their skills, Cardigan’s student-athletes had a lot to be thankful for and a lot to celebrate this fall. Together they competed in more than 100 games and races. That’s a lot of sprints, kicks, jumps, catches, tackles, tacking and jibing, and belaying!

Below are the athletes who were honored at Cardigan’s 2022 Fall Sports Awards, not just for their athletic ability but for their sportsmanship and integrity.
