Greensburg Junior High School athletes were recognized last week for their athletic achievements.

Winners of the All Sports Award were selected after meeting a list of criteria, including earning at least four letters.

Mylie Wilkison and Justice Thornton were selected from the All Sports Award winners as the recipients of the Freeland Award. It's named after a former Greensburg Community Schools employee, Norman Freeland, and is presented yearly to the male and female athletes to be the best participating athletes at GJHS that year.

To be considered for the Freeland Award, athletes must write an essay as part of the application process, which is considered by coaches who vote, along with athletic/non-athletic activities, attitude, effort and school citizenship.
