The auditorium was full of excitement on Thursday evening as the Anna Athletic Booster Club sponsored the annual winter/spring sports banquet at Anna High School. Awards were bestowed upon the players active in basketball, powerlifting, soccer, track, tennis, golf, baseball and softball.

In addition to the awards, more than $6,000 in scholarships were doled out.

Several players were honored in each sport and their names will be displayed on a 24-year plaque at Anna High School. AABC President Jeff Frasier told the recipients how proud he, the board and the community are of them and how special it is that they are leaving a legacy that will be displayed for so many years to come.
