Yellowjacket senior track star Aaron Webb brought home one last outstanding honor before getting his diploma Friday night. Webb was named the All Arkansas Preps “Boys Outstanding Track & Field Athlete of the Year”. All Arkansas Preps honors 400 of the best high school athletes and coaches across the state in 12 sports for the 2022-23 season. Selections are made by the sports department of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. The following is what the Democrat-Gazette wrote about Webb: “Blistering times were the name of the game for the Yellowjackets’ senior standout. Webb dazzled at the Class 5A state championship by winning the 200-meter dash in 21.66 and running a leg on the first-place winning 400-meter relay team. The University of Central Arkansas commit carried that momentum into the Meet of Champs, where he duplicated the same feats. He also nearly won the 100-meter dash, finishing in second by a tenth of a second.” The All Arkansas Preps award banquet will be held Saturday, June 10 at the Statehouse Convention Center. Congratulations, Aaron!
