Luke Stennett - Portland High School (Golf): Stennett shot a 69 (-2), finishing as the co-medalist as the Highlanders easily won the Shoreline Conference (SLC) championship at TCP River Highlands in Cromwell on May 24. The sophomore was one of three Highlanders to be named first-team all-conference – joining Quinn Lapinski and Joe Lamalfa – as Portland cruised to a conference victory, besting runner-up Morgan High School by 28 strokes. Along with winning conference, the Highlanders finished the regular season with a perfect (16-0) record.
Diana Zito - RHAM High School (Lacrosse): Zito broke the program’s single season assist record, dishing out 24 helpers this spring and surpassing the mark at RHAM High School in the team’s final game of the season on May 19. The junior was a true scoring threat for the Raptors, scoring goals and setting up a record number of other, and she was also named a scholar-athlete for her leadership on the field, along with her work in the school and in the community.
Jake Martino - Bacon Academy High School (Track & Field): Martino took first-place in the javelin at the Eastern Connecticut Conference (ECC) championships on May 23 at East Lyme High School. The junior set a personal-best mark, throwing the projectile 152’10”, as the Bobcats secured the top three spots in the javelin thanks to Martino, Peter Walsh (2nd), Peyton Adams (3rd). Bacon Academy placed fourth overall as a team.
Nicholas Rivard-Lentz - East Hampton High School (Track & Field): Rivard-Lentz pulled the rare double-dip, capturing a conference championship on the track and in the field during the Shoreline Conference (SLC) championships at Old Saybrook High School on May 25. The senior won 110 meter hurdles, running a time of 16.59, and then won the pole vault, vaulting 13’03”, which was nearly two-feet higher than second-place finisher Gage Rovelli of Coginchaug.
