On Sunday, June 10, The Amity Booster Club hosted the annual Block A Dinner at Race Brook Country Club.
The event honors the best of the best of all the Athletes at Amity High School.
Top honors (Athlete of the Year), as we posted the other day, went to Patrick Winkel and Nicole Koshes.
One of the other highest awards (Scholar Athlete) went to one boy and one girl who are not only excellent on the field, court, links, track, whatever but also excel in the classroom.
This year, the male scholar-athlete Jacob Silliman was an Amity Ice Hockey defenseman. He has an astounding 4.9 GPA.
The female scholar-athlete Shayna Goldblatt, a tiny, physically fit young lady who surprised the wrestling coach when she expressed her desire to join the team a couple of years ago. With sports trainer Kim Pierce’s encouragement, Shayna learned everything she needed to know and this year, she was one of the co-captains. She also played field hockey, contributing a lot to that team and as an underclassman, she was on the outdoor track team.
No matter what she takes on, Shayna always gives her all. She obviously takes her studies seriously and is a fantastic choice for this year’s scholar athlete award.
