River Cats celebrate high school athletes

SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento River Cats hosted their third annual All-City High School Sports Awards Sunday, May 22.

The River Cats named All-City boys and girls teams in each sport and the male Art Savage Award and the female “V” Award. Oak Ridge has had two “V” Award winners — distance runner Alex Kosinski and girls basketball star Sara James.

More than 360 local athletes were honored at the ballpark. The All-City athletes were acknowledged in a pre-game ceremony along with each sport’s Player of the Year. The male and female athletes of the year are recognized in an on-field pre-game ceremony.

The River Cats have worked with area experts and school/league administrators to form a committee to name the winners. The 2010-11 V Award winner was UCLA-bound Zoe Nightingale from St Francis High.
