2016 Courtney A. Miller Spirit Award


Congratulations to the 2016 Courtney A. Miller Spirit Award recipients

Katy Bell and Kari Miller!


The Courtney Miller Memorial Fund and the Miller Family -- Randy, Linda, Kyle, and Katie -- established the San Marino National Little League Softball/Courtney A. Miller Spirit Award in 2007 in memory of their daughter and sister, Courtney, who passed away in 2006 at age 19 after a three year battle with cancer.
 
Courtney played 5 years in San Marino National Little League, beginning in the Pitching Machine Division, and then moved on to Minors Softball. Courtney was selected to the Minors All-Star team, a team which became the very first San Marino Softball District Champion to qualify and compete at the Regional level, launching the SMNLL Softball program to the level of success it has enjoyed ever since.  Many of the girls on that winning team went on to play as Juniors All-Stars and in 2001 competed on the first team from San Marino to participate in the National Little League World Series.
 
Courtney was a gifted athlete, a spirited and positive softball player, an enthusiastic competitor, hard worker, good friend and teammate, and embodied all of what it means to participate in SMNLL softball.  She continued that spirit and competitiveness in later endeavors, in high school at Polytechnic and at college at Berkeley, inspiring others in her brave fight against her cancer.
 
The Courtney Miller Foundation and Miller Family give this Award annually to the SMNLL Softball girl who best exemplifies Courtney's indomitable spirit.  The recipients are selected based on the following criteria: Team Spirit – Enthusiasm – Sportsmanship and fair play - Team Contribution, Dedication, Inspiration, and overcoming any challenges to participate in SMNLL Softball.
 
The recipients this year are Katy Bell and Kari Miller.
 
They both embody the essence of the Courtney Miller Award -- enthusiasm, contribution and inspiration, dedication to the game and their teammates.

Brayden Herrera of the Red Sox (Majors Baseball) once again went deep - a 2 run shot to left center that staked the Red Sox to a win on Tuesday, May 17th, earning them a spot in the Championship game.  This was Brayden's 5th home run of the season and second in as many games, both with a hairline fracture in his hand!  Humdinger!
