Jake Silliman and Shayna Goldblatt, Amity’s 2018 Amity Scholar Athletes

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.

 

At The Block A Dinner, “It’s Déjà Vu All Over Again”

As Yogi Berra once said, “It’s déjà vu all over again.” At least that’s what it felt like for me. I don’t know if anyone else realized it, but it immediately struck me when the Athlete of the Year winners were announced at the Block A dinner at Race Brook Country Club in Orange.

Two years ago, at the annual Sports Dinner, Chris Winkel and Katie Koshes were crowned Amity’s Athletes of the Year.

Go forward to Sunday, June 10, Patrick Winkel and Nicole Koshes were named the 2018 Athletes of the Year.

So, there we go again. Two amazing Orange athletes with highly recognizable last names earning the top honor. This is quite a tribute to their parents, as this particular award is not only for the athlete’s playing ability but for the way they conduct themselves on and off the field.

Congratulations Pat and Nicole, you both deserve this honor. Thank you for all you did for Amity over the years, all the best in College and in all your future endeavors.

IMG_9769Every year the Amity Booster Club hosts the Block A Dinner (Athletic Awards) honoring individual Amity athletes for their exemplary work on – and off – the fields, courts and tracks – throughout the year.

Perhaps the most coveted award is that of Athlete of the Year, it is the final presentation of the evening and the only one whose recipients are a closely guarded secret, known only to the Athletic Director and his administrative assistant.

This year, two Orange residents, who honed their skills on the Orange Little League fields and became legendary on the Amity High School softball and baseball fields (and the Amity Basketball court), were named the male and female Athletes of the Year.

It is our pleasure to announce that Katie Koshes and Chris Winkel are this year’s Top Amity Athletes.

Both of them have proved their integrity, sportsmanship, talent and drive for the past four years and we are so happy that through all their success they remained humble and rejoiced in their fellow players’ accomplishments.

Katie and Chris represent everything that the Athlete of the Year should be — Congratulations!
