    The fall sports season officially wrapped up with a sports awards ceremony on Monday, Nov. 11, in the Grand County High School auditorium. Red Devils athletes had many achievements on which to reflect.

    Cross-country runner Kylah Ricks ran away with the regional and state championships for the Red Devils. Evan Ellison took the regional title and second place at state for the boy’s side.

    The boy’s golf team took second in the region this year, and Luke Williams and Rafe Saunders were the team’s leaders. The girls volleyball team played hard all season and finished even with a 5-5 regional record. The football squad had some fantastic home wins, and senior quarterback Bryant Troutt ended his prep football career with dramatic rushing yardage to his credit.

    The girls tennis team was big this year. Fourteen signed up at the beginning of the season.

    Sophomore Kyla Jackman took the regional crown, and she made it to the state semifinals.

    In opening the awards ceremony, Assistant Principal Dr. Mary Marable said, “We want to say thanks to the coaches, parents and the athletes for giving up a lot of their time. Some of you started early this summer to get ready for fall sports. As a team, it takes everyone to be involved, so again, thanks to the coaches, parents and athletes.”

    Jessie Anderson, Rachel Thompson, Evan Ellison, Soren Indergard and Patrick Johnson received academic all-region awards for cross-country.

    Griffin Shannon took home an academic all-region certificate for golf. Kiersten Kimmerle and Jenna Hawks achieved academic all-region honors in tennis. Jordyn Reidhead and Akira Scovill picked up academic all-region awards for soccer.

    Academic all-state awards also went to Shannon for golf, Hawks for tennis, and Ellison and Patrick Johnson and for cross-country.
