Syracuse senior Hunter Woodhall and Bingham senior Whitney Rich were honored as the Gatorade Utah track and field athletes of the year.

Woodhall, who plans to compete at the University of Arkansas, won the 200 and 400 meters at the Class 5A state meet at BYU last month. Woodhall won the 200 in a state-record 21.17 seconds, while crossing in 46.24 to capture the 400 title.

"Words cannot express the emotional journey it has been to be a part of Hunter's career," Syracuse coach Brian Berrong said in a release. "As a coach, you dream of having such an athlete. Hunter is truly one of a kind."

Rich, who plans to continue her career at BYU, won the 1,600 and 3,200 meters at the Class 5A state meet. She finished the 1,600 in 4:55.39 and the 3,200 in 10:34.73, her personal best.

"Whitney is a one-of-a-kind athlete," Bingham coach Alisha Paxton said in a release. "It's not just that she's successful or just that she's a hard worker, it's that she lives the sport. She analyzes everything to maximize her performance."
