Long-time Mechanicsburg soccer coach Tony Lougee was honored as the 2013 A.I. Garner Outstanding Coach Award.
Lougee was nominated this year by finalist Natalie Zelenky. And her entire essay was shared with the nearly 250 in attendance. In addition, four other previous Travers Award nominees, including 2007 winner Bobby Warshaw, nominated Lougee for the award. So excerpts of all four of those essays were also shared with the audience.
The John Travers Award started in 1981 and is named for the late executive sports editor of The Patriot-News. The award is sponsored by M&T Bank and co-sponsored by Harrisburg Lions Club and Pennsylvania Media Group.
