Sean Hughes, a senior from Gonzales, was one of 16 student athletes to receive awards during the annual Athletics Banquet held May 15 in the gym at the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts.

“We are here to recognize our student athletes for their hard work and dedication,” said Dale Clingerman, coordinator of athletics and recreation at LSMSA. “The students worked very hard, not only in their sports, but also in their academics.”

Hughes, honored for her efforts in girls’ basketball, was named Most Improved Player of the Year.
