FULTON -- Fulton's Grace Ousley and Aidan Haglund were named the school's two selections for the MSHSAA award of exemplary sportsmanship, ethics and integrity, Fulton Activities announced via Twitter Monday.

Ousley was the school's Homecoming Queen and played girls golf, girls basketball and girls soccer.

Haglund earned Homecoming King and took part in football and boys wrestling.

MSHSAA gives each school district two awards for exemplary sportsmanship, integrity and positive citizenship.

Fulton's coaches and directors nominated students for the award, and a Google document was created using all nominations made by coaches and directors for students, staff and the community to vote; each person was restricted to one vote, and the school kept the polls open for two weeks.

"Grace Ousley and Aidan Haglund have been model sportsmanship athletes for their careers, and they will be sorely missed next year!" Fulton activities director Ryan Waters said. "I want to congratulate them and thank them for everything they have done for the activities department. Big things are in store for these two, and I wish them nothing but the best in future endeavors!"
