There are no red carpets or paparazzi, but the fall sports season brought its share of awards and accolades for Rivers athletes. It was a successful season that saw five teams qualify for postseason play. And it signaled a joyous return to a full schedule for soccer, field hockey, football, volleyball, and cross-country, all of which were sidelined last fall due to COVID. Beyond team successes, many individual athletes were singled out for recognition after the season. Here’s a list of fall-season awards. Congratulations to all!
