More MMA Stuff...

Minnesota Multisport Awards - The nominees for all but two of the MMA categories--Long Course Athlete of the Year and Performance of the Year--have been officially announced, albeit in chunks. The male Triathlete of the Year candidates, for instance, were announced on October 2, while the female Most Improved nominees were revealed back on September 26, etc. For obvious reasons, the nominees in the final two categories were scheduled to be announced after the Hawaiian Ironman. To be more precise, those nominees will be tomorrow. Our fingers are crossed...
We've been hoping that at least one POY nomination will come out of Kona. And we suspect that a successful race in Hawaii will elevate someone's, or a few someones, long course resume to the nomination level.
Here is a list of all of the nominees selected thus far:
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Olivia Bagnall, Nicole Heininger, Larry Hosch, Casey Miller
JUNIOR OF THE YEAR: Mata Agre, Michael Burgdorf, Greta Danielson, Paige Danielson
GRAND MASTER OF THE YEAR: Neil King, Hank Larsen, Kent Schwitzer, Pam Stevens
MASTER OF THE YEAR (Female): Jan Guenther, Julie Hull, Sarah Mercer, Julia Weisbecker
MASTER OF THE YEAR (Male): Brian Bich, Kevin O'Connor, Tony Schiller, Greg Taylor
MOST IMPROVED (Female): Diane Hankee, Heather Lendway, Lisa Lendway, Bridget McCoy, Jennifer Scudiero
MOST IMPROVED (Male): Thaddeus Ingersoll, Brendon O'Flanagan, Brian Sames, Ross Weinzierl
DUATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Suzie Fox, Brian Sames, Jennifer Scudiero
TRIATHLETE OF THE YEAR (Female): Suzie Fox, Diane Hankee, Heather Lendway, Cathy Yndestad
TRIATHLETE OF THE YEAR (Male): Sean Cooley, Kevin O'Connor, Matthew Payne, Marcus Stromberg
