Mission Prep's Hurwitz honored
Mission Prep senior Ray Hurwitz, a three-sport star for the Royals, has been named by the California Interscholastic Federation as its Farmers Central Section Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
Hurwitz was to be awarded a plaque and a $2,000 check at the Royal Day Celebration at Mission Prep on Monday.
Hurwitz, who has maintained a 4.56 grade-point average and is ranked No. 1 in his class, earned first-team all-East Sierra League honors this past season in football while helping lead the Royals to a league championship. He also played a key role in helping Mission Prep’s boys basketball team reach the Central Section Division V title game this year and has been a four-year varsity starter in baseball.
Hurwitz is currently deciding to attend either Harvey Mudd or Yale, according to a school-issued news release.
