Nick King surprised Maya Riddlesprigger in front of her classmates at Central High School.

Congratulations to Maya Riddlesprigger, the 2018 Friday Night Rivals Scholar Athlete of the Year!

During telecasts of our Friday Night Rivals high school football games this past season on CW59, we featured Lithia Subaru Scholar Athletes.

Over the previous weeks Sports reporter Nick King has been telling you about the finalists, who were all very deserving, but only one can win.

On Thursday, Nick King surprised Maya Riddlesprigger in front of her classmates at Central High School.

Lithia Subaru General Manager Frank Perez presented Maya with a check for $5,000.

At Central, Maya is ASB President. She was Homecoming queen in the fall, and she'll graduate as a valedictorian.

For four years, Maya starred for the Grizzlies' volleyball team, making all conference and all Valley every season since she was a sophomore.

Recently, Maya spent almost all of her free time raising about $30,000 for the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society, after being nominated for the organization's Student of the Year campaign.

Maya will play volleyball next year at Cal State Fullerton, where she received a partial athletic scholarship... and now she has $5,000 more!

Congratulations Maya Riddlesprigger!
