UW Well-Represented At 75th Sports Star of the Year Awards

| No Comments

With the demise of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer last winter, many wondered about the future of the annual Sports Star of the Year Awards.  After all, the event had been around since former P-I sports editor Royal Brougham started the awards in 1935.

However, the Sports Star of the Year Awards are alive and well and now is in its 75th year.

The Seattle Sports Commission and Seattle Children's Hospital have teamed up to continue the awards, which will take place on Jan. 19 at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle.

For the first time voting will take place online. Visit www.seattlesports.org until Jan. 15 to vote. Winners will be announced at the event on Jan. 19. Tickets can be ordered here.

The UW's Jake Locker, Nick Taylor, Lorenzo Romar and the IRA national champion men's crew are nominees for the Male Sports Athlete of the Year.

On the women's side, Washington's Tamari Miyashiro, Kendra Schaaf and the NCAA national champion softball team are among the nominees.

Todd Dybas with SeattlePI.com wrote this great summary of this year's event.
