The 2018-19 school year had already concluded when the final prep championships were decided last weekend.

With the baseball season now pushed back a week, the calendar had turned to June before trophies were handed out in Class 5A, 4A and 3A last Saturday. That means that the prep sports calendar ran through 11 months, dating back to last August when the fall sports season got underway.
