The banquet provides an opportunity to recognize and honor the accomplishments — both academic and athletic — of athletes who took part in SUSD’s fall sports programs, according to a press release.

Eighty athletes who were a part of high school football, swimming and diving, cross country, badminton, golf and volleyball teams will be honored at the event. Attendance is by invitation only, the release stated.

Scholarships from the Scottsdale Charros Foundation will be awarded, the release stated. The event is sponsored by the Scottsdale Unified School District Foundation, the Scottsdale Charro Foundation, the Larry Hellestrae Foundation and Sports Destination Network, Inc.
