Carson Liggett, Blue Valley
Carson Liggett helped boost Blue Valley to the Kansas Class 6A state baseball title, going 3-0 in the three state games. The Louisville commit fired 9 innings with just 1 earned run allowed over the state championship weekend at Fort Scott including closing out the state title game over Gardner-Ederton.
For the season, Liggett finished with a perfect 9-0 record, and a ridiculous 0.80 ERA and 0.67 WHIP.
Kendra Wait, Gardner-Edgerton
Kendra Wait became the first Kansas female to win four golds at the state track and field championships in 108 years. Wait took home gold in the Kansas Class 6A gold in shot put (41'2.5"), pole vault (11'0"), long jump (18'5") and 100 meter (12.02).
Wait, who was named the Kansas Gatorade Volleyball Player of the Year in 2019, will play volleyball at Creighton next year.
