Emilee Buell and Zach Trottier, both Pequot Lakes High School seniors, were selected to represent Pequot Lakes in the Academics, Arts and Athletics (Triple "A") Award program, activities director Marc Helmrichs announced.

Established in 1988, the Triple "A" Award is sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League. The award goes to high school seniors who have a "B" or better grade point average and who participate in league-sponsored athletic and fine arts activities.

Each school may nominate one male and one female, and those students then compete against other schools at the sub-section, section and state levels.

Both Buell and Trottier are active members in the school community. Buell carries a 3.8 grade point average while participating in band, volleyball, basketball and softball. She plans to attend college next year and will pursue a degree in biology with an interest in pre-med. Buell is the daughter of Patricia and Ryan Buell of Pequot Lakes.

Trottier participates in band, football and baseball while carrying a 3.81 grade point average. He plans to attend the University Minnesota and major in biological sciences.

Triple "A" Award recipients are selected by a multi-level process involving the league's member schools and administrative regions. League officials will announce the four award state recipients (a girl and a boy from both a Class A and Class AA school) at an on-court recognition during the state boys' basketball tournament.
