Loretta Blaut: Sportswoman of the Year Award

Loretta Blaut: Sportswoman of the Year Award

Alyssa Lyons


The State Champion is beginning to rein the GGCL again and it all started Monday, April 28. Senior Loretta Blaut along with seven other female athletes across the Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky area received awards for their performance in athletics. Blaut received the title of sportswoman of the year in track and field for her accomplishments last year at the State meet.

The banquet featured paralympians, college athletes and high school champions. The event was featured online on YouTube where I, senior Alyssa Lyons, was invited to broadcast. I arrived an hour early to the event to set up camera and the Tricaster 8000-a program used to live cast online. Throughout the banquet I created designed and put changes onto the viewing screen for the public. It was a privilege to cast Seton’s own champion receiving her award at the event.

At the State meet in 2013, Blaut cleared the high jump at 5’9”, the highest recorded in Seton history. Since the meet, Blaut has suffered an ankle injury during her last basketball season. The injury has caused Blaut to miss four meets thus far into the season. Blaut hopes to compete at GGCL’s and defend her State Title.
