The Miami Herald will once again honor the top athletes in Miami-Dade County at its annual All-County Athletic Awards banquet.
The event will be held Wednesday morning at Jungle Island near downtown Miami and honor athletes and coaches in 18 sports. Athletes and Coaches of the Year in each individual sport will be announced as well as the overall athletes and coaches of the year in both Class 8A-6A and 5A-1A.
Lifetime Achievement awards will also be presented to individuals for their longtime service to the athletic community.
The Leo Suarez/Walter Krietsch Courage Award will be presented to an individual who has showed extraordinary courage in the face of adversity much like those two former Miami Herald editors did before they passed away.
The All-Sports Award winners, honoring the top overall athletic programs in Miami-Dade County will also be announced.
The event begins at 8:30 a.m., but guests that have previously purchased tickets are strongly encouraged to arrive at 8 a.m. when doors open. No tickets will be sold at the door.
The All-Broward breakfast will be held Friday morning in Davie.
