Gathered in the high school auditorium, members of the track, volleyball, baseball, softball, tennis, football, soccer, cheerleading, wrestling and basketball teams took the stage to be recognized by their respective coaches. Each coach handed out the Coach’s Award, Most Improved Award and the season MVP Award to deserving athletes.

In the audience to laud the students for their achievements were parents, faculty, classmates, Second Vice President of the Board of Education Jeannette Santos, administrators and Superintendent of Schools Dr. T. Mary Kelly.

“It is wonderful to be here and celebrate our student-athletes for all their accomplishments,” said Evan Farkas, director of athletics, physical education and health. “We know how hard they work during the school year and not only in the classroom but on the field.”

Following the distribution of Gold Key Awards, students Jonas Archer and Kayla Miller were respectively presented with Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Awards. Additionally, student-athlete Lynda Pierre was designated Female Senior Athlete of the Year, while Tysheem Griffin and Josue Martinez Garcia tied for Male Senior Athlete of the Year.
