Every 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!
