Meet Our Winter Sports Stars
In this report, The Euclid Observer staff salutes athletes in three winter sports—basketball, wrestling, and swimming—who deserve special recognition for their achievements, their hard work, and the dedication they’ve exhibited in striving to reach higher levels of performance.
In basketball and wrestling, after consulting with the teams’ head coaches, we’ve selected “Players of the Year” and “Wrestlers of the Year” from the Euclid High and Villa Angela-St. Joseph squads. We’re also honoring four outstanding members of the Euclid Panther girls’ swim team as our “Swimmers of the Year.” You’ll find photos of these athletes with the stories that follow.
In addition, for basketball and wrestling, we are recognizing several other athletes on each team who are deserving of All-Star status.
