By Jeff Greer

Herman Castro won the 2012 Sam Budnyk Student-Athlete of the Year award Tuesday.

The Seminole Ridge cross country and track runner beat out 37 other nominees from public and private schools around Palm Beach County. He’ll receive $5,000 for his first year of college, and $20,000 in total if Castro maintains certain grade levels and other criteria.

Castro finished in the top five of his class at Seminole Ridge, and captained both of his athletic teams. He’ll study at Florida.
