The final day of the KPAX Sports Awards has arrived in Missoula, and it’s time to reveal the two winners from this year’s group of nominees. We had the pleasure of hearing from and getting to know the 10 nominees from the five high schools in Missoula. We are grateful to these student-athletes for taking the time to share their stories with us not only for these awards but also throughout their athletic journeys.

The 2024 nominees for the KPAX Sports Awards showcased incredible talent. We gathered at an evening event in Missoula to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the finalists. After a long and intense competition, we are thrilled to announce that Alix Mund from Hellgate High School and Grady Walker from Sentinel High School are this year’s winners. Both Mund and Walker will be awarded $1,000 scholarships from the Honors Court as part of their accomplishments. Mund will be pursuing college track and field at Boise State, while Walker will be playing college football at the University of Montana in Missoula.

Congratulations to Alix Mund and Grady Walker for their well-deserved recognition. We also want to extend our congratulations to all of the nominees for this year’s KPAX Sports Awards. To all the student-athletes in the region who are finishing their high school careers, we commend you for your dedication and hard work.
