Detroit High School Sports Awards 2021: Girls lacrosse honorees

Once again the area’s best high school student-athletes are being recognized in the Free Press.

The 2021 Detroit High School Sports Awards honors the top competitors in the metro. Despite the coronavirus interrupting or delaying meets and games, local teens in nearly a dozen sports were named to the area team. These young stars were recognized in a June 30 show, where winners will move on to the national show, and a chance to be named the player of the year in their sport.

Riya Batra, junior, Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook-Kingswood.

Stats: 47 goals, 18 assists (13 games)

The buzz: One of the top snipers in Division 2, Batra connected on 72% of her shots, netting six goals when the Cranes won the Catholic League championship in May. The second-team All-Stater has good knowledge of the game and can change the momentum at a moment’s notice. She is verbally committed to Columbia.
