Honoring the hard work of its student-athletes both on and off the field, Copiague School District held its annual winter sports awards dinner for its varsity athletes at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School on March 10. Sponsored by the Copiague Booster Club, the awards recognize their athletic and academic accomplishments.
Coaches, central office administrators and Copiague School District’s Board of Education members congratulated athletes from girls bowling, boys bowling, girls basketball, girls winter track, boys basketball, boys winter track and wrestling teams. 
Coaches called athletes up front to be recognized and celebrated both their individual and team achievements during the season. They also distributed individual awards, including the Coaches’ Award, Most Improved and the MVP award, to worthy receipients. 
Seven Golden Eagle awards were presented to students from each team with the highest cumulative grade point average. This year, Melanie Garcia (girls bowling), Alfred Barredo (boys bowling), Marvin Pineda Lobo (wrestling), Maya Wilson (girls basketball), Terrance Mason Jr. (boys basketball), Jillian McLaurin (girls track) and Christopher Canenguez (boys track) were recipients of the Golden Eagle awards.
