Dragon Pride on Display at All-Iowa Awards Night

The Des Moines Register’s All-Iowa Sports Awards Night brings together the best in student athletics and coaches from across the state. The contest recognizes individual male and female high school prep student athletes in all Iowa High School Athletic Association-recognized sports. Recipients of the awards are chosen by the high school sports departments of the Register and Iowa City Press-Citizen.

The Johnston Dragons had an outstanding showing at the All-Iowa Sports Awards Night. Nominated for awards were Pat Hennes, All-Iowa Coach of the Year (JHS Girls Cross Country), Taryn Knuth (All-Iowa Girl Athlete of the Year), and Patrick Bose, All-Iowa Boys Cross Country Athlete of the Year. Hennes and Bose walked away with the all-state honors; Knuth was among three outstanding female athletes nominated for the award, with the honor going to Elle Ruffridge of Pocahontas, Iowa. Congratulations to our Johnston Dragons on their remarkable accomplishments!
