Trimble County Raiders teams gathered last month for the winter sports banquet.
The dessert banquet was filled with reminiscing, laughter, conversation and everyone seemed to have a good time. For some, it would be the last time everyone who participated in the boys and girls basketball teams and on the cheerleading squad this year would be to together in one room.
Coaches gave speeches about their student-athletes and presented awards to many individuals for their efforts and accomplishments through the season.
First up for the night were the cheerleaders, by Coach Marsh, who presented the lone star senior of the squad, Jacaylnn Marsh, with the Blue and Gold award, and Ashley Davis and Chandler Hughes, both sophomores, with “Most Improved.”
Next up was the girls basketball team, whose awards were distributed by Head Coach Kerrie Stewart and Assistant Coach Dwight Inskeep (also the freshman/junior varsity coach).
Katie Callis and Macy Mitchell were named to the All-District Tournament Team for the 29th District. Mitchell also was named to the All-North Central Kentucky Conference for the season.
Boys basketball players were the last to receive their awards. The Raiders had a rough season, but still had accomplishments to celebrate.
The Raiders five seniors were all starters; manager Amanda Durand and statistician Garth Drake also are seniors.
Head Coach Bob Lauster, junior varsity Coach Chris Reed and freshman Coach Jimmy McKinney presented their awards to some of the following student/athletes: Larry Sullivan and Aaron Law both were named to the 29th District’s All-Distirct Tournament Team. Law also was named to the All-NCKC and All- 8th Region teams.
