2020 Regional All Stars awards show was live and socially distant!
Tonight the Bennington Banner and Manchester Journal Regional All Stars awards show was held online, where we honored the top high school athletes and their coaches of the 2019-20 school year in video format. We revealed the male and female athletes, coaches of the year and the teams of the year during this broadcast, along with the Unsung Heroes award.The awards show — sponsored by Southwestern Vermont Health Care, Bennington Subaru and Olin Scott Fund Inc. — can be seen on our Banner Facebook page, the Journal Facebook page and on both Bennington County public access TV stations, CAT-TV and GNAT, also at 6 p.m. The All Stars event is in video format this year since large-scale, in-person gatherings cannot be held.
This year’s All Stars was hosted by legendary MLB pitcher and broadcaster Jim Kaat, and had surprise cameo appearances by several top U.S. athletes.
This year’s All Stars was a tribute to all the hard work and dedication shown on the sporting fields, courts and surfaces in our area. The video was produced by Jeff Ross, a multi-Emmy winning sports producer and owner of Reel Video Group.
The 2020 All Stars video will be available indefinitely on benningtonbanner.com and manchesterjournal.com.
