Ezra Vogel received the Horizon award for making strides by not yet going to the top of mountain of his full potential. Ben Frederick cut a lot of his time this year, making him the recipient of the most improved. MVP would go the heralded sophomore Coltan Hyttinen, as his coach stated that he had to train alone most of the season due to his abilities were unmatched by the other runners on the team. Eighth-grader Trevor Kershaw would earn the coveted rookie of the year award to round out the awards on the boy’s side.
