Each month, Northwest Catholic will feature two high school Athletes of the Month. These athletes are nominated by their schools and selected by a board with members from CYO athletics, Catholic schools and the Fulcrum Foundation. In June, two of these athletes will be selected as Athletes of the Year and receive $1,000 scholarships. These athletes are chosen based on their achievements on and off the field, and in their communities.
