As the spring athletic season draws to a close, we now look forward to recognizing and honoring the RCS Athletes at the RCS End-of-the-Year Athletic Awards and Picnic on Thursday, June 9, at Joraleman Park from 3:00 - 6:30 p.m. The picnic portion of the event is sponsored by the RCS Sports Association and is only open to all varsity letter-earning athletes in the 2021-2022 school year.
The annual awards ceremony will begin at approximately 4:30 p.m. that evening. Parents and family friends of the athletes are encouraged to join the athletes and coaches for the awards ceremony. Each varsity sport offered by RCS will present its team's Most Valuable Player Award and Most Improved Player Award.
