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_1955The Amity Spartans hosted the Southington Blue Knights for the CIAC Class LL Quarter-final in Woodbridge Saturday afternoon.

The teams seemed fairly evenly matched through the top of the fourth inning with great pitching on both sides. THEN Amity showed why they are Number 1 with four runs in the bottom of the fourth.

The Blue Knights managed to get one run in the fifth inning, but that was the end of it.

The Spartans picked up another run in the sixth inning and that’s all she wrote — Amity wins 5-1 and advances to the Semi-finals.

Amity will face New Milford at Muzzy field in Bristol Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

IMG_1182The Amity Varsity Baseball team is 7-3 for the season and their victory on Monday against Cheshire (6-4) shows just how mighty they are.

The three losses were close games: 1-2 Sheehan; 1-4 Fairfield Prep and 1-4 today against Shelton.

But a couple of the victories were mind blowing: Lasting 11 grueling innings with Xavier and winning 1-0; stepping all over East Haven 21-2; and Monday’s 16-1 win against Cheshire.

The Spartans simply dominated this game. No one scored in the first, fourth or fifth innings but Amity showed Cheshire how the game is played with six runs in the second inning, 7 in the third and 3 in the sixth.

Cheshire didn’t score until the sixth inning with Thomas Savino’s RBI.
