Former Canyon del Oro baseball standout Tristan Peterson was named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll thanks to a perfect 4.0 in the fall semester.
This list was updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who had gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but college and professional awards. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
