Eight athletes and two coaches from Henry County received South Atlanta Regional awards Wednesday from Positive Athlete Georgia, which announced its 2019-20 winners Wednesday.

Both of the South Atlanta Regional coaching award winners were from Henry County — Stockbridge’s Vernon Denmark for the boys and Dutchtown’s Ebonee Usher for the girls.

Each individual sport also had one athlete honored as the most positive athlete for that sport. Ola had two of those individual winners, Samuel Brown in boys track and field and Nathaniel Grayson in multi-sport.

Henry also swept the South Atlanta Regional basketball honors — Hampton’s London Edmond-Reynolds for the boys and Woodland’s Sambresha Everett for the girls.

The other local award-winners were Strong Rock’s Mitchell Barton for boys swimming and diving, Luella’s Deasia Matthias for gymnastics, Locust Grove’s Jayla Ray for cheerleading and Union Grove’s Keshu Khara for wrestling.
