South Durham Little League Awards & Scholarships

Kelsey Oonk Sportsmanship Award
Established in 2022, the Kelsey Oonk Sportsmanship Award was created to Kelsey Oonk for her dedication to the development and implementation of SDLL's softball program. Kelsey's relentless effort to expand opportunities for girls in the South Durham area to play the game of softball has been an inspiration. The award recognizes a league age 12 softball player for exhibiting the Little League values of character, courage and loyalty based upon how the player has conducted herself over previous seasons, including the player’s sportsmanship, teamwork and overall love of softball. SDLL Coaches and Members of the Board of Directors are provided with the opportunity to nominate one or more league age 12 players for the award.

- Nominations are due to the SDLL Board of Directors by January 15.
- Recipients of the award receive a plaque and a scholarship equal to the amount of their SDLL registration fee.
- The award is presented annually at the beginning of the year typically during Opening Ceremonies or the first game of the season.
