The best and brightest of Massachusetts high school sports were honored Sunday at the Globe’s annual Scholar-Athlete ceremony.

Fourteen Boston Globe/Richard Phelps Scholar-Athletes, along with the Globe’s Athletes of the Year, received their awards for a year’s worth of success in the classroom and in athletics. The Scholar-Athletes each receive a $3,000 scholarship. Richard Phelps, president of Phelps Industries in Wakefield, partners with the Globe in the award.

The female winner was Sandwich’s Maggie Layo (field hockey, ice hockey). NEPSAC awards were presented to a pair of three-sport athletes, with the male athlete of the year going to Charlie Mitchell of the Waring School and the female award going to Nobles’s Lauren Dillon.
