It’s time to hand out the 2013-2014 Examiner Rice Sports Awards. These honors are meant as a fun way to look back on some of the great individual and team performance from the past 10 months.
There was no shortage of memorable performances this school year, including five Rice teams winning Conference USA titles. All five are in the running for Team of the Year.
Before we get to this year’s recipients, here’s a rundown of last year’s awards: Male Athlete Taylor McHargue (football), Female Athlete Natalie Beazant (women’s tennis), Coach of the Year Nicky Adams (women’s soccer), Freshman of the Year Holly Hargreaves (women’s soccer) Team of the Year Baseball and Game of the Year Women’s basketball beat UTSA with 0.1 seconds left.
