Kendra Schmidgall wins Region AAA award

Hancock Senior Kendra Schmidgall was recently selected as the Region 5A girls' AAA winner.

The AAA award is meant to recognize and honor high school seniors who have excelled in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in the fine arts. The three As stand for academics, athletics and arts.

Schmidgall is now in the running for the state award, which will be announced at the boys' state basketball tournament on March 24. The top two award finishers from each region will be invited to the banquet. League officials will announce the four Triple "A" Award recipients at the banquet. Award recipients--a girl and a boy from both a Class A and a Class AA school--will receive a four-year $1,000 scholarship.

Kendra is the daughter of Rob and Kathryn Schmidgall of Hancock.
