Cardigan’s Fall Sports Awards 2023

Cardigan's Fall Sports Awards

Before students departed for Thanksgiving break, we gathered in Cardigan's Humann Theatre to celebrate a successful fall season of athletics. 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 our 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. Below are the athletes who were honored at Cardigan’s 2023 Fall Sports Awards, not just for their athletic ability but for their sportsmanship and integrity.
