Athletes of the Week: Scholarship honorees

Savannah Spring and Anthony Reiner, 2016 graduates from Clarkston High School, were this year’s recipients of the Steve Howe Scholarship.
Spring had 24 RBIs off of her 29 hits during her senior season with the Clarkston Varsity Softball team. She hit one home run and three doubles. She also stole eight bases.
Reiner had a strong senior season with Clarkston Varsity Baseball after breaking his throwing hand playing football with the Wolves’ varsity team.
After surgery and a plate and six screws he was able to make a remarkable comeback for the baseball season. He had five wins, no losses and finished with an ERA of 1.604, which included a 2-hit against Lake Orion during the district semifinals.
The scholarship is awarded every year to a varsity baseball and a varsity softball player. It is given to honor the tradition of sportsmanship and outstanding performance in Clarkston Baseball and Softball.
The scholarship award was started by the family of Steve Howe, who passed away in a traffic accident in 2006. Howe was a Clarkston graduate and a member of the 1976 State Championship Team.
He went to the University of Michigan and then played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees.
