Join the Times Record as we celebrate and honor the accomplishments of the 2016-2017 All-Star high school student athletes at the inaugural Best of River Valley Preps Awards. The Best of River Valley Preps awards banquet is the Times Record's way of joining the community to honor thousands of outstanding high school athletes, coaches and fans who allow us to share their stories, performances and passions. Presented by the Times Record and sponsored by leaders in business, the event honors the top performers across 15 sports from Sebastian, Logan, Crawford and Scott Counties in Arkansas and Le Flore and Sequoyah Counties in Oklahoma. Awards will be presented to the Outstanding Player of the Year in each sport, as well as Male Athlete of the Year, Female Athlete of the Year, and Coach of the Year. There will also be awards for athletes in each of the 15 sports. Best of River Valley Preps athletes are invited to attend for free, and the event is open to family, friends and the general public.
