The Dawson County High School girls and boys soccer teams held their annual banquet last week at Veterans Park to celebrate another successful season.
"It was a great day and a sad day," said Coach Jed Lacey. "It is a day to say goodbye to players I watched grow up playing for me and these young kids leave young adults."
The May 16 event was a pool party and award were given as voted on by the players with the exception of the coaches award.
"Great time, best banquet we ever had. It is what the players wanted and it is about them so I said yes to it...what else could have wanted for the last time we will be together as a team," Lacey said.
The Rising Tiger award, which is given to a junior varsity player, was decided by the coaches as well. Patrick Rosales and Samantha Floyd received the honor.
Top Newcomer of the Year awards went to Dillon Tierney and Taylor Daniel.
The Coaches Award went to Tim Moody and Frankie Muldoon.
The Best Support Player (also known as the Unsung Player Award) was given to Patrick Moody and Fallan Lacey.
For the Iron Tiger Award, players choose someone that they would consider to be the backbone of the team. It is a person with a refuse to lose attitude. Nick Murphy and Ava Walker, both seniors, received the award.
Tim Moody and Mackenzie Kimbral were given the Defensive MVP award for their roles.
The Offensive MVP went to Cole Dennis for the boys and Rachel Rajczak for the girls.
The Golden Boot is given each year to the player that is considered the overall team MVP. Those awards went to Dennis Pyetsukh and Mackenzie Callas.
"The great thing is soccer season is right around the corner with more new players and memories," Lacey said.
