Star Tribune All-Metro Sports Awards roll out June 15-19

By Star Tribune, 06/15/20, 3:30PM CDT


Without a banquet this month, the show goes on with daily reveals of 10 top honors for performances in the 2019-20 season.

The third time was not the charm for the Star Tribune All-Metro Sports Awards banquet. After two years of hosting the event to recognize the best of the metro area’s high school athletes, we planned to do it again this week at Allianz Field. Then the coronavirus pandemic changed almost everything.

But the show to announce our top 10 awards is going on. Starting Monday they will be disclosed daily on our Star Tribune All-Metro Sports Awards page, two at a time, first online in a special daily video presentation at noon at startribune.com/sports, and then in the next day’s newspaper.

The awards to be announced and featured in this week’s Star Tribune sports sections (click on links to find out the winners):
