Published

on

The Lehi Free Press is recognizing the following Lehi-area athletes with All-City awards for the fall 2021 season. 

This program is designed to honor the best of our local high school competitors and resulted from our efforts to recognize their accomplishments in a meaningful way.

The selections were made based on nominations from coaches, available statistical information and the results earned by each athlete in state-level competition. Final decisions were made by the newspaper staff.

In this article, we honor competitors from the cross country, girls tennis and boys golf teams. In subsequent stories, we’ll present our All-City girls soccer, volleyball and football teams.Recognition for athletes in winter sports will follow shortly.

This is the start of our second annual installment. We plan tocontinue the awards program following each contested season of the school year.
