"We'll be OK," Zygiel said of next season's prospects.
In other presentations, varsity head football coach Bob Madigan presented trophies to Isaac Bray, MVP; Grant Merrill, Don Anderson lineman, and Austin Grayvold, Joe Moraska defense.
"We had a pretty rough year (3-6) with a pretty tough schedule," said Madigan, noting six playoff teams on the schedule. "We have to find a way to win six games (and qualify for the playoffs). We can do some damage in this division (eight)."
Norway's junior varsity, coached by Rico Meneghini, won the MPC football title.
"We've got something special going on here," Meneghini said.
Bailey Grayvold (MVP), Leah Mattson (coach's award) and Jacey Bal (most improved) earned volleyball accolades.
"She's special, that sums Bailey up," Coach Nicole Anderson said.
In cheerleading, Coach Cindy Miller saluted Keerstin Hewlett and MaKenzie Bubloni, co-most valuable players, and Kayla Dumais, Carrie DeRidder Spirit Award.
