LAKE HUNTINGTON - Winter seems like the longest season of the year. That familiar perception was echoed by Sullivan West Athletic Director David Eggleton at the Bulldogs’ winter awards celebration. Certainly, the exigencies of the weather and the added weight of the Covid effects made it seem so. So it was with great joy, and perhaps a sigh of relief, to give winter its due and to then look forward to a hopefully “normal” spring.
Consequently, Sullivan West lauded its winter sports teams as coaches gave awards to their choices of each team’s most notable participants. As many of them noted, it is always a tough choice when so many contribute to the overall team effort. As the audience filed in, they were greeted by a musical slide show depicting some of the most riveting moments of this past winter’s action. A.D. Eggleton welcomed the audience and thanked all of those who lent their energy and support to the winter sports endeavors. He noted that of the seven varsity sports programs, five made it to postseason play.
High school principal Mark Plescia’s theme was about cherishing the high school days and memories. Coaches took turns coming to the podium to give an overview of their respective team’s season and to elucidate some of the defining moments and milestones. Each then cited the athletes they selected to receive trophies. The varsity awards were as follows:
Girls Basketball Coach Pat Donovan, Assistant Coach Joe Meyer: Most Valuable Player: Riley Ernst; Coaches Award: Elanie Herbert
Boys Basketball Coach John Meyer, Assistant Coach John Hauschild Most Valuable Player: Chris Campanelli; Coaches Award: Dylan Sager
Boys Indoor Track Coach Stephen Rogers, Assistant Coach Will Schlott Coaches Award: Jared Kratz; Most Improved: Dillan Hanslmaeir
Girls Indoor Track Coach J.P. Lang Most Valuable Athlete: Kathryn Widmann; Coaches Award: Kaydence Everitt
Basketball Cheerleading Coach Daniela Fox Coaches Award: Amanda Dirig; Most Committed Cheerleader: Becca Brewer
Alpine Skiing Coach Lionel Billard, Assistant Coach Scott Scardino Boys Most Valuable Skier: Parker Tyler; Most Improved Skier: Caden Allen; Girls Most Valuable Skier: Lucia Kennedy.
Wrestling Coach Joshua Potter- ESW Most Improved Wrestler: Rally Cruz
Junior Varsity boys and girls coaches Ronj Padu and Skylar Musa also spoke glowingly about their teams. Winter Scholar Athlete Teams included Girls Indoor Track and Boys Basketball. Each made the standard of having 75% of their team achieve an average of 90% or higher. Other individual scholar athletes included: Tyler Stevenso, Paige Muzuruk, Taylor Brustman, Bella Wagner, Angela Cordischi, Rosalyn Tanner, Dillan Hanslmaeir, Ryan-Joyce Turrner and Jared Kratz.
