The Sportswoman of the Year Award has been a tradition at DSHA since 1955. This award is chosen by the senior class and is given to the person in the graduating class whom they feel represents their class as the best athlete.
The 2018 Sportswoman of the Year is Meghan Scott. Meghan has been a Varsity Cross Country Runner all four years, as well as a Varsity Track and Field runner every year except junior year when she was injured for the entire season. Freshman year she led the Cross Country team to a 2nd place finish at Sectionals and an 11th place finish at State. She was named First Team All-Conference and Second Team All-State. Sophomore year she helped the team win the first WIAA Sectional Championship and the team finished in 5th place at State. She was named First Team All-Conference and GMC Runner of the Year for winning the Conference meet, First Team All-Area and First Team All-State. Junior year was Meghan’s best season. She helped lead the team to the WIAA Sectional Runner-Up and 7th place finish at State and Meghan won the WIAA Division 1 Individual State Championship. She was also First Team All-Conference, Greater Metro Conference Runner of the Year, First Team All-Area, First Team All-State and was named the Wisconsin Gatorade Cross Country Runner of the Year. Senior year Meghan led the team to a Sectional Title, 7th place finish at State and a 5th place individual finish. She was named First Team All-Conference, GMC Runner of the Year and First Team All-State. Due to her injury during the track and field season her junior year, she only participated in three years of varsity track. Freshman year she was First Team All-Conference Indoor 800 meters, Second Team All-Conference Indoor 3200 meter relay, Second Team All-Conference Relays 6400 meter relay, First Team All-Conference Outdoor 3200 meter relay and Second Team All-Conference Outdoor 800 meter run. Sophomore year she was First Team All-Conference Relays 6400 meter relay, Second Team All-Conference Relays 800 meter relay, Third Team All-Conference indoor 1600 meter run, Third Team All-Conference Indoor 3200 meter relay and Third Team All-Conference in the mile run.

Meghan was also named a Greater Metro Conference Scholar Athlete in Cross Country and Track and Field her senior year. She truly is a tremendous athlete and her peers have recognized that in their voting for this award. Meghan will attend the University of Notre Dame in the fall where she will compete in Cross Country and Track and Field. She will surely be missed next year by the Cross Country and Track and Field teams and has left her mark in school history.
The Coaches Award has been a tradition since 1989 and is voted on by the Varsity Coaches. It is presented to the athlete who has demonstrated sportsmanship, leadership, a good work ethic and desire in practices and game situations.
This year’s recipient is Megan Crevoiserat. Megan has been a four year varsity starter on the soccer team and was a captain of the Varsity Soccer team her senior year. Megan was a member of the WIAA Division 1 State Championship team her sophomore year and shared that experience with her sister Emily who was a senior. That year she was named First Team All-Conference and Honorable Mention All-State. Junior year the Varsity Soccer team won the WIAA Regional Championship and Megan was named First Team All-Conference, First Team All-Area and First Team All-State, in addition to being nominated for the Journal Sentinel High School Awards for Soccer. Senior year soccer is still in progress but if history repeats itself, I would imagine that Megan will again be named All-Conference and All-State. She was also named a finalist for the Journal Sentinel High School Soccer Awards.
Megan was also named a Greater Metro Conference Scholar Athlete in Soccer her senior year. She was a member of the Student Athletic Advisory Council and has demonstrated great leadership skills. Megan truly exemplifies all of the attributes the Coaches Award is looking to acknowledge. Megan will attend St. Louis University in the fall where she will continue her soccer career. She will surely be missed next year but we can’t wait to hear how her soccer career continues to unfold.
