Local student athletes receive Academic All-state honors
Four local high school student athletes earned Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) Academic All-state honors for the 2020-21 winter sports season.
From Monticello High School, Tuff Adair was named to the Academic All-state wrestling team, Kennedy Brewer received basketball honors, and Elli Nielson was honored in drill. Nate Grover was named to the Academic All-state basketball team for San Juan High School.
To qualify for Academic All-state nominations, the student athletes were required to be seniors with a 4.0 cumulative, non-weighted grade point average (or meet an index score – viewable at uhsaa.org) and be a contributing member of a varsity team.
Congratulations to these excellent student athletes for their hard work and dedication both in scholastic and athletic pursuits.
The UHSAA has presented the Academic All-State Award for over 25 years to recognize students who excel in the classroom as well as in athletic competition. Individuals are selected for the award on the basis of their athletic ability and academic proficiency.
With over 85,000 students participating in high school activities, the Academic All-State Award is the most prestigious honor the UHSAA presents to senior students.
