East Islip High School’s varsity teams continued to excel over the winter, boasting four league/division champions (boys bowling, girls bowling, wrestling, boys basketball) and four recipients of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s coveted Scholar Athlete Team Award. All were honored at the school’s Winter Sports Awards Night on March 7 at the school’s auditorium. The Scholar Athlete teams, recognized for their strong commitment to academic goals, were boys winter track, wrestling, girls winter track and girls bowling.
The girls varsity bowling team was lauded for their perfect 12-0 regular season as undefeated league and county champs, and their second-overall finish in the New York State tournament.
All-State, All-County and other individual awards were also given out to the many deserving young athletes.
“Once again, East Islip's pride showed at the Winter Sports Awards Night,” said Board of Education President Glenn Reed. “The chance to honor these fine young men and women who represent themselves and our school district is something we can all be proud of.”
