Sports awards event airing on Channel 30

The second annual TV30 Tri-Valley Sports Final Player of the Week Awards Event honoring outstanding high school athletes from the Tri-Valley is currently airing on TV30. The event took place at the Robert Livermore Community Center on May 31 and featured guest speaker former NFL running back for the Oakland Raiders, Napoleon Kaufman.

The ballroom was filled with families who watched as 35 outstanding athletes received their awards at the special ceremony and reception, along with superintendents, principals and coaches from Tri-Valley high schools.

"This event was made even more special by the overwhelming support each student received from their fellow athletes, parents and others who attended," said Melissa Tench-Stevens, Executive Director of TV30.

During the program a video of each student's winning play was shown and students were presented with their awards. Individual interviews with the Players of the Week, parents, coaches and principals are included in the show.

The show will be aired through August. For days and times, visit DVDs are available for purchase on the website.

A regular show on TV30 is Tri-Valley Sports Final, which covers team and individual sports with exciting footage and commentary on high school sports in the Tri-Valley.
