Senior athletes and their parents were honored in a ceremony on February 18, but the end of the year athletic awards presentation was pre-empted by COVID-19. Thanks to the continued efforts of the Clearwater Booster Club, seniors were presented with collages picturing their sporting activities. At this time, we would also like to recognize Clearwater athletes who earned All-Conference, All-District, Academic All-State, and other special honors. Local team awards will be announced in a separate post on this website in the near future.

BRL Honorable Mention:
Clearwater Boys Basketball Coach Zac Moore was selected to coach the Big 3 Athletics All Star Boys Basketball team. Clearwater athletes Taylor Hicks, Gage Keller, and Rachel Rowold were invited to play in the Big 3 All Star games which were scheduled for March 28 at East Carter High School, but were cancelled due to the COVID-19 quarantine. Hicks was also named a JCAA All Star selection.
Taylor Hicks scored his 1000th point on home court in the 3rd place game of the BRL Basketball Tournament and finished the season with 1,142 career points. Leading the Tigers in scoring that night with 37 points, Hicks became the eighth Clearwater boys basketball player to reach 1000. On the girls’ side, with one of the regular season games being cancelled, Rachel Rowold ended her high school basketball career just 8 points away from the 1000 point milestone.
Sadly, many spring sporting events were cancelled, including the entire spring baseball, softball, and golf seasons. All Conference selections for baseball and softball were based on the fall season. Because Clearwater does not play a fall softball season, CHS softball players were not considered for All-Conference honors.
