St. Mary’s Dominican High School honored student athletes for 2017-18 winter sports with the Lou Reilly Memorial awards for continually trying to improve their skills and who have listened to their coaches and teammates. Each recipient was recognized for encouraging those playing while she is not in the game, and when playing, gives her full effort at each moment. The student athletes themselves have a nominating vote in the selection of the award, but coaches have final decisions.
