The sports landscape in Loudoun County continues to expand and produce supremely talented and driven student-athletes.
The Loudoun Times-Mirror will recognize many of these gifted athletes in the second annual "Athletes of the Year" Awards Breakfast on June 5 at the Holiday Inn in Leesburg.
"Loudoun County is a mecca for youth sports, a field of excellence for young competitors in its public schools and community sports programs," said Dale Peskin, Executive Editor & General Manager of the Times-Mirror.
"As the hometown newspaper for student and recreational athletes throughout the county, we celebrate the programs and people that serve players in all sports with such enthusiasm and excellence. Athletes of the Year represents the commitment of the Times-Mirror to comprehensively cover sports in the county with passion and support."
The Times-Mirror will honor the top male and female athletes at each of Loudoun County's 13 public high schools - Briar Woods, Broad Run, Dominion, Freedom, Heritage, John Champe, Loudoun County, Loudoun Valley, Park View, Potomac Falls, Stone Bridge, Tuscarora and Woodgrove.
Additionally, Loudoun Soccer's Female and Male Athlete of the Year will be recognized. Loudoun Soccer, a nonprofit partner of the Times-Mirror, is the largest soccer organization in Virginia.
The awards ceremony begins at 8 a.m. and will conclude with the Times-Mirror selecting an overall Female and Male Athlete of the Year.
Patrick Joseph (Loudoun County) and Ashley Herndon (Stone Bridge) were selected as the top overall athletes at the inaugural event. Joseph is now running cross-country and track at Virginia Tech and Herndon is playing soccer at James Madison.
