Osinski, who was a four-year member of the Saint Mary’s lacrosse team, was named as the recipient of the Impact Player Award. A two-time All-MIAA selection, she is listed in the top four in program history in career goals, assists, and points.
This morning, Governor Lamont ordered the cancellation of in-school classes for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. Therefore, there will not be a 2020 CIAC spring sports season.
The CIAC empathizes with our school communities and the experiences lost due to COVID-19. Our focus is now on completing guidelines for summer contact and the resocialization of CIAC sports in the fall.
Editor’s Note: Spring Sports include Baseball, Golf, Lacrosse, Outdoor Track, Softball, and Tennis.
The coronavirus has done a number on sports throughout the USA. There is no March Madness, High School teams will not realize the joy of winning a state championship title, Indoor professional games are being squashed with every passing day, opening day for Minor League baseball teams has been delayed indefinitely, and so on.
Opening Day for Amity Baseball, Softball, Tennis and Volleyball is scheduled for Monday, April 13, but only time will tell when the games will actually begin.
BOWA schools will be closed for two weeks, so that also will have an impact.
Take care everyone. And do everything you can to stay healthy.
