In the midst of homecoming celebrations, there was also a pause to remember best of the best in the Bulldog student-athletes as the fall 2021 recipients of the Owen Knutson Heart of the Bulldog Award were recognized. This honor recognizes those athletes who exemplify what it means to have the heart, character and work ethic of a Bulldog. It was awarded in front of the home crowd before the homecoming game by Owen’s parents, Tim and Dawn Knutson, on Friday, Oct. 1. This season’s recipients, from left to right, are: Zoe Nelson (girls cross country), Greta Jorstad (volleyball), Marissa Zelek (cheer), presenter Dawn Knutson, Tristan Wendt (football), Austin Hamholm (boys cross country), presenter Tim Knutson and Wren Candler (girls golf).
