2017 Totino-Grace Athena Award

The Athena Award recognizes the achievements in athletic activities of young women during their high school years, and the award is given in their senior year. Athena, a Goddess of Greek Mythology, was chosen as the symbol by the awards committee to represent young women athletes. This is the 45th year for this award program that honors outstanding women from Minneapolis and suburban high schools. The award was presented to all recipients at an annual luncheon, at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton in Bloomington, on May 4.  

Selection of the outstanding female athlete is done on the basis of excellence in individual competitive athletic activities or for participation and accomplishment in group competitive athletic activities. Totino-Grace’s varsity women’s coaches determine our winner. She must have contributed to two or more competitive athletic activities and met TG’s eligibility rules during all four years of participation. Lastly, achievements outside of athletics take on a secondary role in the selection process. 

Because of her unique contributions in softball and hockey, Lauren Scheneman is Totino-Grace's 2018 Athena Award Winner. Her many athletic honors include the following: 8-time varsity letter winner, 2 conference awards, 2 section awards, 1 state award, 1 MVP award, and the honor of be chosen captain 2 times.    

The College of St. Benedict is Lauren’s next stop to further her education with a biology degree with the intent to pursue a career in physical therapy. Lauren will play softball for the Bennies.  

The Athena poster, showcasing Lauren's many superior accomplishments, is on display in the trophy case, outside of the gym.
