2015-2016 LAROSA'S MVP
And so, with the 41st annual Buddy LaRosa's Sports Hall of Fame Banquet happening this coming Sunday, another great season of high school sports comes to a close.

The HOF banquet will be televised live on CET beginning at 2 p.m. At the banquet, six new HOF inductees will be officially enshrined, plus from a selection of 12 incredible student-athlete finalists, the 2015-2016 Male and Female MVPs of the Year will be announced.

What a great season 2015-2016 was in high school sports! It was a season that recorded, between Ohio and Northern Kentucky high schools, 16 state championships in team sports including state team titles in football, volleyball, soccer, golf, cross country, swimming, tennis, and track & field.

In addition to these team championships, this past season saw Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky produce an amazing 90 additional state champions in individual events or as members of swimming and track & field relay teams.

This year's 12 finalists for the LaRosa's MVP Award will have big shoes to fill as last year's MVPs of the Year were simply outstanding student-athletes: The 2014-2015 Female MVP of the Year was Annie Heffernan, St. Ursula Academy, Track & Cross Country, now at the University of Notre Dame. The 2014-2015 Male MVP of the Year was Austin Myers, Campbell County High School, Wrestling, now at the University of West Virginia.
