The Sun Standout Awards returned for their sixth edition on May 22 at the South Point Showroom, recognizing the best and brightest in Southern Nevada high school athletics.

Now nearly a decade into the near-annual awards show—the show was scrapped in 2020 amid the pandemic and took a hiatus in 2021 when high school sports weren’t played—the list of past winners looks more distinguished than ever. It includes a pair of NBA players (Lakers guard Troy Brown, a Centennial High product, and Mavericks/Coronado High guard Jaden Hardy), a first-round Major League Baseball Draft pick (Phillies/Bishop Gorman High outfielder Justin Crawford) and a three-time college All American (Virginia/Green Valley High swimmer Abby Richter).

Here are this year’s standouts joining that exclusive group, along with their stories and achievements:
