The award is given to one player from each team who reflects strong character, hustle, sportsmanship and positive communication, among other traits. Coach Bob Gainey called the award a “well-deserved honor” for Zabawa.

On the court, the team dropped the game 65-26. Dealing with pressure in the backcourt, the Griffins made some turnovers which led to Lake Shore points. Scorers on the night included Grace Zabawa, six points; Mackenzie Engel, six points; Leah Frank, four points; Ivette Lewandowski, five points; Kelsey Zabawa, three points and Ryan Stedman with two points.

The girls faced Maryvale Jan. 4, opening their league play with a 48-33 loss. Jess Engel had some notable plays, but the team couldn’t hit their stride, Gainey said.

The team is 3-3 overall and 0-1 in the league. They will host Iroquois on Thursday, Jan. 11.
