2017-18 Kevin Paupst Memorial Sportsmanship Award Recipient - Leeann Roney
Submitted By Laura Vandrunen on Monday, April 9, 2018
The Kevin Paupst Memorial Sportsmanship Award was presented to Leeann Roney of the Atom LL team by her coach, Darrin Skene.  Darrin describes Leeann as a 'great team first player, always working hard and having a great attitude always'. 

Kevin Paupst was an assistant coach for three years on a team that grew from PeeWee HL, to PeeWee C and then Bantam C.  In the fall of 2014 he became ill and bounced back from invasive surgery with his trademark positive attitude and the support of his close-knit family.  We were all shocked when Kevin passed away suddenly in February of 2015.  His team was devastated from his loss: aside from being a dedicated coach, he was also dedicated to being a constant source of fun at practices and on the bench during games.  We could always count on Kevin to crack a joke or make a sarcastic comment to lighten the mood when things got a little too stressful. 

 

We are proud to honor Kevin’s contribution to our association by awarding the Kevin Paupst Memorial Sportsmanship Award annually to a player on a C or LL team that exemplifies the following qualities:  an enthusiastic spirit, dedication, commitment, and showing a positive example to others.

Congratulations on winning Kevin's award, Leeann!  Your Ice Hawks family is very proud of you!
