BOE Recognizes Athletic Honors thumbnail256728

At the March 20 meeting of the Board of Education, several winter season student-athletes were honored for their respective post-season awards. Athletes representing boys swimming, boys track, girls track, wrestling, girls basketball, girls fencing and cheerleading were celebrated by their coaches and Director of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Athletics Kevin Finnerty. Additionally, members of the field hockey team were honored at the March meeting since they couldn’t be in attendance for the fall season recognition. A special congratulations was given to the girls fencing team for its Suffolk County championship and to the cheerleading team for its state championship win.

The Board of Education also recognized Suffolk Zone Award Winners Andrew Desimone and Emily McGinley for displaying excellence in physical education and health. Not only do award winners have to excel in these areas, but they must also achieve outstanding grades in all subjects, have exceptional character, leadership skills and act as a role model for other students.

The final athletics recognition of the evening honored the late Douglas McLaughlin. Mr. McLaughlin was a Three Village community member who was an avid supporter of the district’s athletic department. At the time of his passing, it was asked for family and friends to make donations in his name to the Louis J. Acompora Foundation. The funds were used to purchase Three Village an exterior AED cabinet and an AED for outside the Ward Melville High School concession stand. Mr. McLaughlin’s family was presented with a plaque that will be placed next to the donated equipment.
