Grades 5-8 Athletic Awards

Athletic Department special award winners Avery Weems (Dick Saukus Memorial Award) and Harrison Garner (James W. Mathis Memorial Award)

15 May, 2024

It's been an outstanding year in sports for our Lower School Stars and Suns! We recently gathered to celebrate our athletes and honor our coaches during the grades 5-8 Athletic Awards Assembly on May 9. It was a special time to recognize those who have dedicated their time and talents to SAA-SDS during the 2023-2024 school year. Congratulations to everyone for a successful year!


Special Award Winners

Our top two awards, the Dick Saukus and James W. Mathis Memorial Awards, are presented to one 8thgrade multi-sport athlete from each school who has excelled and most exemplifies the combination of athletic ability, academic achievement, and citizenship.


The Dick Saukus Memorial Award – Avery Weems

Coach Saukus was a dedicated coach for many years at St. Agnes Academy. He was especially devoted to the Lower School basketball program and worked selflessly to develop our grade school athletes. Coach Saukus passed away in the early 90s while still actively involved as a coach and mentor. This award carries his name because of the lasting impact he had on the athletic program here at St. Agnes.


The James W. Mathis Memorial Award – Harrison Garner

Coach Jim Mathis started coaching at St. Dominic School in 1962 and was in his 50th year in that capacity when he passed away in 2012.  He was a born competitor and decorated track and field athlete holding multiple records including 4 world records as a Masters Division runner. While at SDS Coach Mathis served this community as a teacher and athletic director and coached baseball, basketball, & track and field. It is estimated he had nearly 2000 victories during his time at SDS.
