When any coach begins the season he or she works hard to get to know their players and encourage everyone to do their best on the ice, court, track or pool and to show good sportsmanship at all times.
The Southern Connecticut Conference (SCC) of which Amity is associated, has named three of the Amity High School coaches as “Coach of the Year” for his or her particular sport.
• Michelle Martinik has been named the SCC Girls Basketball Coach of the Year for her exemplary work with our amazing Lady Spartans, who are moving on to compete for the state title.
• Jeremy Iverson was recognized as the SCC Boys Indoor Track Coach of the Year.
• Amity Interim Boys Ice Hockey Coach Mike Richetelli has been named the SCC Hockey Coach of the Year. The Spartans show incredible teamwork every time they step onto the ice, and are competing against Branford High School in the SCC Championship game this Saturday at 2:00 pm at Bennett Rink in West Haven.
Although we’ve seen Coach Gary Lindgen at every regular game this season, he fell ill before the season began and for personal reasons, needed Richetelli to step in during his recovery. We wish Gary all the best and hope he will be able to return in his full capacity next year.
Congratulations to Michelle, Jeremy and Mike, we couldn’t think of anyone better to earn this honor. You all deserve the title!
