For years, Star Tribune high school reporters and editors have named All-Metro teams. This school year, we expanded the All-Metro brand to include honors for more sports, teams and athletes.

Tuesday night at Target Field, the first All-Metro Sports Awards gala ever will be the capstone of this expansion, as 500 people — athletes, coaches, athletic leaders, family, friends and fans — gather to celebrate the best sports moments of the 2017-18 seasons.

Ten new award winners will be revealed Tuesday night, including male and female athletes of the year, teams of the year, coaches of the year and more.

Look for special coverage on social media Tuesday night, live from Target Field: @stribsports on Twitter, and @StarTribune on Instagram. And check out Wednesday’s Star Tribune for complete coverage of the event.
