Warriors News · 2019-2020 Athletic Awards: Rebecca Winslow Spirit Award


Dayton Christian Warriors,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 athletic awards ceremony! The athletic department is excited to continue to recognize our senior athletes for their amazing academic and athletic achievements this year!

The Rebecca Winslow Spirit Award was established to honor the memory of Rebecca Winslow who was tragically killed in a car accident on October 5, 2007. Rebecca was a varsity senior soccer player who was an inspiration to all who encountered her. She was the smallest person on the soccer team with one of the biggest hearts. Her positive outlook and dedication were not only demonstrated on the field, but it carried over to her school, community, and church. She loved the Lord and she loved to serve. This award is presented annually to a Dayton Christian senior athlete who makes significant and continuous contributions, like Rebecca, to their sport, school, community, and church. This year, it is our honor to present the Rebecca Winslow Spirit Award to Yasmine Craver.

The Rebecca Winslow Spirit Award involves a nomination process from each head varsity coach. There is no application process completed by the student. Each head varsity coach nominates a senior on their team that demonstrates the principles of sportsmanship, positive attitude, academic integrity, Christ-like character, local church service, and community involvement. Nominations are then sent to an external committee for review and selection.

This year, we received fifteen nominations from our head varsity coaches for the Rebecca Winslow Spirit Award. The recipient of this award will have his/her name engraved on a wood plaque that is displayed in the athletic wing of Building B. The Rebecca Winslow Spirit award also comes with a $500 stipend, which is sponsored by the Athletic Booster Club.

The 2019-2020 Athletic Awards ceremony was recorded this year due to COVID-19 and can be seen on the Dayton Christian School YouTube channel. Click here to watch the DC Warriors Awards Chapel.

We will conclude our athletic awards ceremony tomorrow by announcing our four Athletic Booster Club scholarship winners!

Go Warriors!
