The Camp Verde track and field team held its' end-of-the-season banquet, with five Cowboys earning awards.

Justin Reay, Katie Wilson, Amanda Showers, Luis Valdez and Curtis Corder each won awards.

Justin and Amanda won the highest points awards. Both seniors scored the most points in their respective divisions (boys and girls) at the various meets through the season. Justin placed in the top-5 in every race he participated in this season, including six first place finishes.

Amanda placed in the top-5 in all but seven races and earned six first place medals as well. This was the fourth year in-a-row Amanda won the award and Justin tied with former Cowboy Trent Fogelson following the 2012 season for the award.

Katie won the Cowboy Award, which is for outstanding character. Head coach Lori Showers said that the senior thrower is a leader for the team and a "hard worker, honest and just reliable." Katie finished her season and career by placing third in the discus after PRing with a throw of 115 feet, 6 inches.

Freshman Luis won the Matt Showers Outstanding Freshman award. Luis is primarily a sprinter, but has also participated in the 300-meter hurdles and the long jump. Some highlights from Luis' first season with the track and field team include him running a sub-12 second 100 (twice), a 23.99 200 and jumped 16 feet, 1 inch when he jumped in the long jump for the first time in his career.

Curtis, a sophomore, is one of the few throwers the boys squad has and earned the most improved award, following his sophomore season. Since the beginning of the season, Curtis increased his distances in both the shot put and discus. In the shot, he began the season throwing 31 feet, 1.5 inches. He ended his season by throwing 37 feet, one inch shy of his PR that he set two meets before. Curtis PRed in the discus with a distance of 100 feet, 1 inch, the only time he broke 100 feet during the season, but stayed in the 90's for a majority of it.
