South Broward’s Mackenzie Sadaka honored with Miami Herald Courage Award

South Broward’s Mackenzie Sadaka had every excuse to take the basketball season off following the tragic passing of her father Michael Sadaka last September — just weeks before the season opener. Yet, instead of allowing grief to defer her basketball goals, Mackenzie used her father’s brave fight against cancer as inspiration for a breakout junior season, resulting in her being honored with the Leo Suarez/Walter Krietsch Courage Award at the Miami Herald All-Broward Awards banquet on Tuesday.
