Traveling Murphy

Description:  This is an award created to recognize two outstanding athletes, one male and one female from any level, for displaying "patriotic" qualities as a runner we as coaches hope to see in all our runners.  Two old, wooden batons used during our historic LHS track seasons were decorated with the words dedication, commitment, honor, pride, and determination.  Both batons will be held by the athletes and displayed at their discretion until the next cross country meet is ran.  The recipients are asked to bring back the batons during the next practice, so the award can continue to exchange hands throughout the season.
