Tuesday evening, Cody High School put on its annual Athletic Awards Program. Kids who were in sports – including cheer as well as Special Olympics – on the 2017-18 academic year got recognized. State champion varsity squads (Bronc football, Filly soccer, then girls outdoor track and field) saw praise, there was a Pure Performance presentation of the Lifetime Award to nine different student-athletes who each participated in three CHS sports all four years among their prep careers, along with respective individual team honors being announced (various MVPs or Outstanding Performers, Most Improved, Rookie[s] of the Year, Spirit of the Bronc and/or Filly, other such inspirational prizes, as well as All-Conference aside from All-State picks).
The highlight of the night was the acclaim for just seniors – voted on by coaches. 12th-grader Jules Novakovich actually earned the Sweitzer Award by being the outstanding academic athlete. The boy as well as girl Most Desire Award went to Dan Beaudrie plus Ashlyn Bower, specifically. Reece Andre as well as Erika Larsen each received the Buchanan-McFarland Award to simply Cody’s outstanding male besides female athlete. Both of them even captured the such Margaret Martin Award that encompasses sports, classroom work, and citizenship. Those who take that accolade are also the Bronc/Filly candidates for Wyoming’s particular Mower Award going to the best corresponding kids of the state’s whole Northwest District – that voting done by certain administrators. Andre won that honor, too (the girl notching that recognition was even from the local Big Horn Basin area here – Casey Wassum of the Worland Senior HS Lady Warriors).
At the end, by way of a bonus, CHS Activities Director Tony Hult said the Broncs garnered the Casper Star-Tribune newspaper’s All-Sports Awards come Wyoming 3A Classification boys and girls along with combined.
