The hot ticket on Monday night was to be found on N. Powell Parkway, apparently, as the Anna High School Athletic Banquet was a sell-out with people making their way to the ticket table only to find out that there were no more to be had.

The banquet is sponsored by the Anna Athletic Booster Club and honors all athletes from Anna High School with dinner, honors and recognition of achievements. Special awards are presented by coaches and winners’ names go on plaques to remain at the high school. Scholarship winners are also announced at the end of the night, with special booster club and memorial scholarships presented to deserving student-athletes.
