Top sports awards given

Five Minneota athletes took home the top athletic awards at the 2019 Senior Awards Ceremony on Sunday night.

The Andersen-Christianson Athlete of the Year awards, named for athletes who were killed in car accidents, are annually awarded to one female and one male athlete.

Taking the honors this year were Thomas Hennen and Lydia Sussner. Both of them played for state championship teams — Sussner for the volleyball and basketball championship squads this year and Hennen for the 2017 state championship football team.

The Dale Yost Memorial Baseball Scholarship was awarded by baseball Coach Keven Larson to two baseball players, Sam Buysse and Jaymes Moon.

The award is named in honor of former Minneota baseball coach and teacher Dale Yost.

And the top wrestling award, the Minneota Wrestler Booster Club Scholarship was given by Brad Laleman to Cole VanOverbeke.

The awards are given each year.
