Providence student-athletes honoured at annual Pilots Awards Banquet

Monday, March 26, 2018


Providence student-athletes were recognized for leadership, scholarship, commitment and sporting excellence during the annual Pilots Awards Banquet on Friday.

Difference-makers as teammates, classmates and members of their communities, Providence student-athletes continue to demonstrate character, leadership and skill, says Director of Athletics Scott Masterson.

“We are extremely proud of all our athletes and recognize that the success of individuals can only be achieved by the work and effort of every member of a team,” he says. “As these awards are voted on by their peers and coaches together, they understand that their fellow teammates see these athletes as being the best representatives of what each award is meant to recognize. I believe that makes these awards even more meaningful to those who receive them."
