Wildcat Student-Athletes Honored at Awards Banquet

Charlotte, NC - Johnson and Wales Charlotte celebrated the accomplishments of its student-athletes both on and off the court and field at its annual Athletics Recognition Banquet on Saturday night. Athletic Director Trudi Lacey welcomed a crowd in excess of 100 people to the event. Following an outstanding pasta dinner provided by Chartwell's, the state and national award winners from this year were recognized. Each head coach also spoke about their seasons, remarked fondly on departing seniors, looked forward to the upcoming year, and gave out team awards. Lacey finished the evening by announcing the first ever 'Above & Beyond' Award, which will bear the name of its inagural recipient, Chris Plano, for his dedication and never say 'no' attitude towards JWU Charlotte Athletics. The night ended with the annoucement of the female and male Student-Athletes of the Year.
