SMITHVILLE — It was a year of many championships and awards for Smithville in the 2021-22 sports season. It would be only right that the Courier-Tribune Smithville boys’ Athlete of the Year is an individual who significantly contributed to this successful year.

Recent graduate of Smithville High, Rhett Foster, earned the award by received a staggering 298 nominations from the 379 cast in the CT’s readership survey.
