SOUTHINGTON - The Connecticut Association of Schools and the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference honored 384 high school athletes at the 35th annual CAS-CIAC Scholar Athlete Banquet Sunday night, with students coming from each of the area high schools.

The Scholar Athlete program recognizes two high school senior student-athletes - one boy and one girl - from each member high school whose academic and athletic careers have been exemplary, whose personal standards and achievement are a model to others, and who possess high levels of integrity, self-discipline and courage.

The honorees are chosen by the member schools and are submitted to the CIAC with the event being held at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington.
