Ceremony Brings Students Together Virtually to Celebrate CSM’s 2019-2020 Athletes

The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) held its Athletics Banquet virtually last month to recognize student-athletes and their accomplishments during the 2019-20 school year. Coaches, members of the Student Life and Athletics Department and faculty congratulated student-athletes in a video shared on CSM Athletics’ Facebook page and handed out the annual Male Athlete of the Year, Female Athlete of the Year and Scholar Athlete of the Year awards.
