GRATZINGER AWARD

At the conclusion of the 2006 season, the Corona del Mar Lacrosse Boosters and its Board of Directors created an award to be given to the CDM player with the most love, dedication and respect for the game of lacrosse.

 

The Gratzinger Award & Scholarship continues to be presented annually to the boys and girls lacrosse player who best embodies these traits along with the spark, spirit and character to help continue to develop the CDM lacrosse program on campus and within the local community. Its recipient should also intend to further his or her education in college, trade school, or the military. The award is given regardless of the player’s lacrosse ability. The award includes a scholarship to be applied to the recipient’s post high school academic pursuits.

 

The inaugural trophy was awarded to Michael Gratzinger and Kelly McElroy for their efforts in founding and promoting the boys and girls lacrosse programs. Although intended to be awarded upon the completion of studies at CDM, underclassmen are also eligible, in which case, if so selected, the Board will hold the scholarship funds and award them upon the honoree’s graduation.

The Gratzinger Award is voted upon by the players and is the only individual or team award presented at the conclusion of the CDM Lacrosse Season.
