Cumby High School‘s annual athletic banquet was another casualty in the battle to keep COVID-19 cases and potential exposure low in Hopkins County. But, school officials didn’t let that stop them for honoring their student athletes. Cumby ISD Tuesday announced this year’s award winners online.
“We wish that we could be handing out these awards in person, but we wanted to make sure that we give recognition to our athletes that work hard all year long. All of your Cumby Trojans work day in and day out to be the best and we are PROUD of you!” Cumby ISD posted along with the announcement.
This year’s Top Male Athlete Award went to Cameron Scott. He too was named Offensive MVP in football and Co-Offensive MVP with Colby Lindsey in boys basketball.
Lindsey also was named Defensive MVP in football and boys basketball.
Top Female Athlete honors are shared by Rylee Jo Krotky and Neely Jo Hammond. The pair also were named Co-Offensive MVP in girls basketball. Hammond too earned Outstanding Hitter in volleyball.
