Who needs a sports fix? I know I do. Well, help me congratulate the 2020 Best of Preps nominees!

This year we are set to recognize over 200 athletes, coaches, teams and fans. Since we can't have our dinner and awards banquet, the Herald/Review has decided to post a video announcing this year's winners and will publish a special section at the end of the month will all the winners and nominees in it. Both will be published at the end of the month.

In an effort to recognize our spring sports, although we couldn't watch them play, we asked all the coaches to select the seniors on their teams who have had an impact on the program with more than just their play. Their comments about these players will make the section a bit more special!

All of the nominees are listed below. We ask that if you were nominated or your team was that you fill out a Google form by clicking here. We need this information collect your T-shirt size and keep in communication with you about how to receive your shirt and certificate. 

The winners of the medals and plaques will be announced at the end of May. 

Although our sports season was cut short, thank you for making this year fun to watch for myself and all your fans.
