Standohar, Zupko given “Heart of a Champion” award


Canfield, OH (WKBN)  Every year, the law firm of Betras, Kopp, and Harshman hands out its Coach John Kopp Heart of a Champion Award to deserving area athletes. This year’s winners for boys and girls basketball were Girard’s Evan Standohar and Struthers’ Brittany Zupko.

The award honors local athletes who demonstrate determination and courage on the court. Standohar averaged a double-double with eleven rebounds for the Indians this season. While Zupko tallied 13 rebounds per game and over 10 points for the Wildcats.

Both winners received a trophy, with their respective school receiving a 25-hundred dollar cash stipend to be used in the athletic department.
