PHS Athletic Awards Presented

Posted Date: 05/04/2021

Perryton High School hosted the annual Athletic Banquet/Ceremony on Monday evening May 3.  This year’s event was held in the PHS Auditorium and did not include a meal prior to presenting the awards.  This change was in response to COVID-19 precautions.

Highlighting the evening were the awards for Best Student-Athlete and Best All-Around Athlete with a female and male recipient in each category.  Taking the Best All-Around Athlete honors were Paola Uribe and Pablo Perez.  The Best Student-Athletes, based on grade point average, were 2021 PHS Salutatorian Joselyn Medina and Valedictorian Jacob Schollenbarger.

The first award of the evening was the Fan of The Year which was presented to Margarita Limas for the support she and her business have given to PHS Athletics throughout the year. 


PISD Athletic Director Kurt Haberthur opened the event with a recap of this athletic year and the highlights of a very unique and challenging year.  Almost all teams faced COVID quarantines, to some extent, during the year.  “Coach Hab” introduced all of the coaches for each sport.

The head coaches of all PHS sports introduced their teams and announced several special awards for their sport.  The complete list of awards and recipients is listed below.

The event wrapped up with the introduction of the PHS Cheerleaders who led the group in the school song.  Following that, the crowd watched a recap video, created by David Erickson, that highlighted the entire 2020-2021 school year in athletics.
