  • Sports Awards Night Video - May 19, 2014

    It is a tradition that a highlight slide show is shown at this event.  Georgi Stoj '14 created the show for this year's program.  It's terrific and something you might enjoy watching.  It is a little over 6 1/2 minutes in length - but, it is worth it!   To view the show, please click on this link.
