Summer is in full force and many local high school athletes are finally getting some time to relax, while others are competing in summer leagues, after an eventful 2012-13 school year.
The year saw its share of remarkable achievements, successful teams and outstanding individuals who helped make the campaign memorable.
But along with the successes were disappointing moments and unique happenings that deserve recognition.
As is the yearly tradition, these deserving athletes, coaches and events from the four high schools — Burbank, Burroughs, Providence and Bellarmine-Jefferson highs — should be given special treatment.
So here is this year's list of Tully Trophy winners. To be a recipient, an individual, team or school has to exhibit meritorious or worthy accomplishment. Either that, or they have to have done something stupid or strange.
So, without further adieu, here are the winners from the 2012-13 school year.
The third time's a charm trophy is awarded to the Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball team. The Guards were finally able to win a CIF Southern Section Division VI championship after falling in the title game the previous two years in Division VII. It was just the third CIF championship in school history in any sport.
