Seniors feted for sportsmanship

SOPHIA – Area high school athletes were recognized for sportsmanship during the Randolph Sports Council’s winter banquet last week at Snyder Farms Restaurant.

Two senior athletes each from seven schools were recipients of the sportsmanship awards.

They were:

  • Payton Knott and Tyler Malpass of Asheboro.
  • Fallon Cain and Elias Alston of Eastern Randolph.
  • Alyssa Beasley and Brooks Freeman from Providence Grove.
  • Hannah Hinshaw and Christopher Gentry of Randleman.
  • Payton Shiflet and Keaton Reed of Southwestern Randolph.
  • Kaylee McDonald and Aidan Blakeley of Trinity.
  • Kara Comer and Ben Walker of Wheatmore.

Each of the schools selects one male and one female recipient for the scholarship banquet, which is held each January.

The banquet’s guest speaker was UNC Greensboro baseball coach Billy Godwin.
