Dominican College Athletic Department Awards


At the conclusion of each year, typically the last Tuesday in April, the athletic department honors the student-athletes at the Annual Awards Night. In 2019, the department changed awards night into an Awards Banquet with senior student-athletes, academic award winners and distinguished guests invited.


The department presents The Steve Baxter Service Award to an individual whose dedication and loyalty to the athletic department has made a difference.


The Dominic Guzman Award is presented to a student-athlete who maintains a GPA of 3.0 or higher, is an upper-classmen, exhibits personal and social maturity and serves not only the athletic department but to the overall campus community.


The department presents a Lady Charger and Charger Award to a female and male student athlete whose character exemplifies the values of Sportsmanship, Teamwork and Commitment.


Certificates are presented to the Top Female and Male Scholar-Athletes of each class who possess the highest GPAs.


Each team awards a Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award and a Coach's Award to two members of the team.  In some cases, a team may award two Coach's Awards in place of a MVP or vice versa.  In 2019, the department moved away from these awards.

All senior athletes are presented with an engraved mug.
