LACONIA — Throughout last year, Laconia High School coaches, alumni, the athletic director, along with family and friends worked together to rename two awards after two great people from Laconia's running past, Larry Stinson and Tom Dowling. On November 21, 2013, the Laconia High School cross-country team held its season ending banquet. With team alumni in attendance, the first-ever Larry Stinson MVP Award and the Tom Dowling Coaches' Award were presented. Both Larry and Tom's family and friends were delighted to have their loved ones honored by the school. Junior Troy Harper took home the Larry Stinson award for his consistent season as the team's number one runner. Senior captain Timmy Kneuer took home the Tom Dowling Award for his leadership, dedication, and athletic achievements.
