Tim Eldridge, the General Manager of Shadow Lakes Golf Course, was honored with the Don Golinveaux Athletic Service Award. Shadow Lakes was the Falcons’ home course this season, and Eldridge was also instrumental in coordinating the Freedom Athletics Golf Tournament fundraiser.
“Tim has been extremely supportive of both boys and girls golf this year,” girls golf head coach Krista Plumlee wrote in an e-mail. “He has really gone above and beyond to support our golf programs here.”
Student-athletes Meghan Delamater, a track and soccer athlete, and Timazray Shepherd, who competes in football and track, both earned the Ten Seasons patch for participating in a decade’s worth of athletics during their time at Freedom.
Softball infielder Katie Wood was given the inaugural sportsmanship award.
Additionally, Freedom Athletic Director Steve Amaro was surprised at the end of the ceremony by the school’s booster club, which presented the department with a donation of $5,000.
