Athletic achievements from the 2012-13 high school year are to be recognized Thursday evening during the Pawhuska Huskie All Sports Banquet.

The annual event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Pawhuska Elks Lodge, located on the west side of town at 2542 Elks Lodge Dr.

Pawhuska High School athletes in every sport are to be honored. School coaches and guests will make presentations.

During the past year, there were numerous sports accomplishments by PHS athletes.

The Pawhuska Huskie football team returned to the state playoffs and the Lady Huskie softball squad continued to produce college-level talent. Both PHS basketball teams showed vast improvement and the Huskie wrestling program was again represented at the state tournament.

In the spring, the Pawhuska High baseball team advanced to the regional round and the Huskie and Lady Huskie track-and-field units earned medals at the state track meet. Also, the Pawhuska Lady Huskies just missed returning to the state playoffs following a promising campaign that signalled even greater success in the future.

Through all the seasons, PHS athletes received high-quality support from standout cheerleading squads and an exuberant fan base.

Many of those accomplishments will be recalled Thursday evening as the past school sports year is committed to history.
