Athlete of the Year:  Ky Westbrook, Chandler

Coach of the Year:  Sandra Burkhard, Highland:  With the amount of talent Chandler has, it was almost a given that the Wolves would win their seventh straight state title. But Burkhard and Highland put together a very special season that ended with them claiming the runner-up trophy ahead of Hamilton, Xavier and Desert Vista.
