Recognizing the accomplishments of its student-athletes both on and off the field, the Copiague School District held its winter sports awards night in the cafeteria of Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School on March 6. Coaches, administrators and Copiague Board of Education members were on hand to congratulate athletes from girls bowling, boys bowling, girls basketball, girls winter track, boys basketball, boys winter track and wrestling teams. The evening is sponsored by the Copiague Booster Club.

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), Jarrett David (boys bowling), Marvin Pineda Lobo (wrestling), Faith McCombs (girls basketball), Jackson Bright (boys basketball), Kriyal Patel (girls track) and Christopher Canenguez (boys track) were recipients of the Golden Eagle awards.
