Lou Reilly Awards

The Lou Reilly Award is presented in memory of a wonderful Dominican graduate. For many years she had served the community as an educator with a special love for athletics and student athletes. She saw athletic competition and sportsmanship as an important part of the Dominican High School spirit. The award recognizes the athlete who continually tries to improve her skills and listens to her coaches and teammates. This athlete encourages her teammates and gives her full effort at each moment. The student athletes themselves have a nominating vote in the selection of this athlete. The final decision is left to the discretion of the coaches.
