2023 Las Vegas Sun Standout Awards Show at The South Point

Christopher DeVargas

Justine Dunaway and Bruce Woodbury receive the awards for Scholar Athletes of the Year, along with a check for $2,500 each, during the Las Vegas Sun Standout Awards at the South Point Hotel Casino & Spa, Monday May 23, 2023.

Boulder City’s baseball team caught fire at the end of the year, going 14-1 in league play to win the 3A Mountain division, with Bruce Woodbury playing a key role in the outfield. It was nothing new for the senior, who also contributed to winning seasons as a receiver and defensive back for Boulder City’s football team and as a guard on Boulder City’s basketball team.

Collectively, the Eagles went 53-21 in the three seasons with Woodbury as a common link. That’s a lot of games that Woodbury navigated while still finishing third among 129 students in his class. He will attend BYU in the fall.

Last fall, Justine Dunaway helped the Liberty volleyball team reach the regional semifinals. This spring, she captained the Liberty softball team as a first baseman and outfielder who led the team in home runs and on-base percentage.

All the while, she stayed dedicated to academics and community service, ranking sixth out of 741 seniors in her class and volunteering at everything from math tutoring to viola lessons.

“I just manage the time, assign different slots to different things,” Dunaway said. “I’m not the best at it, but I do the best I can.”

She plans to attend Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, where she’ll continue to play softball.
