Athletes of the Year honored for their commitment, dedication

Scott Maier and Mikayla Simek were recognized as the 2016 Male and Female League City Athletes of the Year during a City Council meeting on Jan. 24, 2017.

The awards were presented to athletes from the city’s youth sports program in partnership with Texas Amateur Athletic Federation.

Simek, 12, was selected as Female Athlete of the Year for being a team player on and off the basketball court.  She is an all-around great athlete who leads by example through her hard work, positive attitude and leadership.  Often the first person to practice and the last to leave, Simek has helped lead her team to an undefeated season securing first place in a League City tournament.  She also played a crucial role in helping her team advance to a regional tournament in Lake Jackson where they placed second; and third place in a state tournament in Waco, Texas.

Maier, 9, was selected as Male Athlete of the Year for his work ethic, determination and desire to supporting his team.  He helped guide his team, TEAM Thunder, to a city championship for 8 year olds and up which advanced them to a regional tournament in Lake Jackson.  Maier also played shortstop, pitcher, and first base for the Threshers – who won the Dixie American League Championship.  He was selected to play on the League City All-Star team as a starting pitcher who helped the team advance to a semifinals in the District 14 tournament. 

The Texas Amateur Athletic Federation is a nonprofit organization established in 1925 to promote, organize and conduct amateur athletics in the State of Texas. As an affiliate member, the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation and the City of League City partner to recognize one male and female athlete from each affiliated City based on their character and achievements throughout the year.

Maier and Simek are eligible for regional and state athlete of the year recognition.
