MOST IN
SPIRATIONAL ATHLETES
Most Inspirational Athletes (MIA's) are selected at three of the state competitions, John L. Cassidy Heartland Winter Games, State Basketball & Cheerleading Tournament and Summer Games. Basketball and Summer Games athletes are nominated by their coaches at the competition, and then selected by a panel of judges. Winter Games athletes come from several states and therefore the MIA is selected by a panel of judges at the event.

The most recent MIA's are: 

Leora_Kennedy




 Summer Games 2016
 Leora Kennedy, Dodge City Dodgers


State Basketball/Cheerleading 2016 - Peter Newport, Topeka Junior Blues
