Saint Ignatius Athletics to Recognize Wirtz Athlete Bain Kurtz '18 on December 31

By Athletic Department, 12/21/18, 12:45PM EST


Kurtz won the 2017-18 Wirtz Athlete of the Year award for his efforts on the ice and the lacrosse field.

On New Year's Eve, the Saint Ignatius Athletic Department will honor one of its top student-athletes in recent memory.

At halftime of the Basketball Cats' showdown with St. Vincent-St. Mary on December 31, we will present Bain Kurtz '18 with his 2017-18 Wirtz Athlete of the Year plaque. 

Kurtz starred for the Ice Cats, helping the program earn back-to-back-to-back Division I ice hockey state titles. The accomplished athlete also helped the Lax Cats reach the OHSAA Division I state title game in back-to-back seasons.

For a full synopsis of Kurtz's many accomplishments, read the article Brad Anderson '18 wrote on Kurtz last May here: 

Teammates, classmates, and friends of Bain are asked to join us for the occasion on December 31. Tickets are available online here. 

We can't wait to celebrate Bain and all of his achievements!
