New recognition coming for high school runners

Presidio Sports is excited to announce the introduction of a new High School Runner of the Month award that will recognize local prep runners who exemplify the term “student-athlete” and who are active in the community.

The award is made possible by Santa Barbara Running Company. Each honoree will receive a t-shirt from SB Running Co. and get their picture published online on and in print in the Santa Barbara Sentinel.

A male and female will be recognized each month from March through November, covering track season, community races, and cross country season in the fall.

Some of the criteria that will be considered when selecting the honorees include athletic performance, work in the classroom, community service, team leadership, and sportsmanship.

We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to recognize even more outstanding individuals in the sports community. The High School Runner of the Month award will be a regular feature alongside other Presidio awards like the All-City High School All-Star Teams, the Sports Figure of the Month, the Sports Volunteer of the Month, and the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athletes of the Week.
