St. Bede Academy honors Fr. Gorman Award recipients

PERU — Four seniors have been awarded with the Fr. Kevin Gorman Award at St. Bede Academy.

This is the second year for the Fr. Kevin Gorman Award, the late Academy athletic director, established to recognize SBA student-athletes who participated in each of the three sports seasons for all four years.

This year’s recipients are:

Morgan Knoblauch (cheerleading for football and basketball, cross country and softball).

Tara Kunkel (cheerleading for football and basketball and softball).

Raley Mauck (volleyball, cross country, basketball, track and softball

Laura Sickley (cross country, basketball, track and softball).

“Each of these young ladies is a leader within the activities they represent. Each of them has made tremendous commitments and sacrifices to earn the respect of their coaches for not only their abilities but also for their class of character,” SBA athletic director Tom McGunnigal said.
