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.
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.
