For the past couple of years, that has not happened because of how COVID has changed the high school sports seasons. For the 2021-2022 school year, though, the awards are back.

This past week, the booster club announced their winners for the year. Eighteen athletes applied for the awards — and the talent was so deep that organizers chose to recognize four athletes for their achievements both on the athletic field and in the classroom.

For the girls, the booster club chose a pair of three-sport athletes. Grace Brooks, who competed in soccer, was on the Cowgirls basketball team which placed sixth at the state tournament and won the state championship in the discus, was named the girls runner-up. The girls winner was Josie Kasberger, who was salutatorian for the graduating class as well as playing volleyball, basketball, and placing in all three throws at the state meet.

On the boys' side, Tucker Bonner was named the runner-up. Bonner ran on the cross country team, was a state champion in wrestling and competed on the Cowboy golf team which reached the state tournament. Fellow wrestler Brayden Duke was named the boys athlete of the year. Duke was an all-league football performer, including being named the Intermountain Conference defensive player of the year. In addition, he placed second at the state wrestling tournament and was co-valedictorian at Crook County High School this year.

All four athletes have been four-year varsity performers at Crook County High School.
