•Zipping off to Leverone Field House in a few minutes to watch That Certain Hanover High Graduate run the mile in the Dartmouth Relays.
That Certain Hanover High Senior, meanwhile, is one of 25 boys at Hanover chosen as New Hampshire Athletic Directors Association scholar-athletes. I don't think he's going to the ceremony but it sounds like a pretty neat affair:
The awards ceremony will take place in Concord on Feb. 6th and all Division II high schools in the states will send their recipients to that ceremony. The governor and a speaker from the world of sports will address the parents and scholar-athletes from each school.He got good news from one college in December and is nervously awaiting news any day from another, which happened to announce its new football coach yesterday ;-)
