PAINESDALE — On Friday, Jeffers High School announced their Outstanding Senior Award Winners. Sara Johnson and Levi Frahm were both named the Kujula Award winners.

The Kujula Award is given to the top senior athletes at Jeffers every year. Jeffers Athletics recognized both outstanding male and female senior athletes at Senior Class Day. The pair of seniors are chosen based on their demonstrated exceptional performance in their athletics career at Jeffers High School, having played, and lettered, in multiple sports, and earned postseason recognition in at least one sport, whether as All Conference, All-U.P., All-State, or other conference awards.

Johnson played volleyball and basketball over the past four years for the Jets. Throughout her athletic career, her highlights include: in basketball, she earned second team All-Copper Mountain Conference in her sophomore, junior and senior seasons. In volleyball, she earned All-Copper Mountain Conference Second Team honors as a sophomore, First Team honors as a junior, and Elite Team honors as a senior.

She helped Jeffers volleyball win a 2022 District Championship, and, in 2023, led Jeffers to a 22-2 record and a Copper Mountain Conference Championship. As a player, she set school records: most service aces in a season with 69, most service aces in a career with 171, most career digs with 637, most assists in the season with 150, and most assists in a career with 455.

Frahm will be remembered as one of the top athletes who has ever worn the green and white uniforms of the Jets. His teams’ success, along with his athletic ability, have led to a number of individual successes on the court and field.

He has school records in basketball, including the most points in a season (525), and most points in a career (1583). He holds the single-season free-throw percentage (80%), and the most three-pointers made in a career (223).

For the past two seasons, he has been named the Copper Mountain Conference basketball Player of the Year. In 2024, he was named to the ALL-U.P. Dream Team and D3 Second Team All-State team.

He has led the Jeffers boys basketball team to new levels of success. Over the past four years, the cumulative record of the boys basketball team is 84-10. They have won the Copper Mountain Conference championship four years in a row, three district championships, and the first Division 4 regional championship in school history in 2023.

In baseball, he helped Jeffers win their first-ever regional championship in 2023, and has been named to the All-Conference First Team three times. He was also named Pitcher of the Year in 2022. The Jets have won four straight Copper Mountain Conference championships and two district championships.
