The Oyster Bay-East Norwich Board of Education recognized its student athletes who have excelled in their respective winter sports at its March 15 meeting. The board, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Francesco Ianni, Athletic Director Eric Bramoff and Nassau County Legislator Josh Lafazan presented students with their post-season awards. Lafazan gave remarks about each students’ achievements before they stepped on stage to receive certificates.

“You’ve displayed sportsmanship in showing that how you perform off the field is just as important, if not more, as how you perform on,” Lafazan said. “You’ve displayed hard work and delayed gratification. Time after time after time, you know the work you put in today will help you excel tomorrow. And you’ve displayed excellence, in that you can practice all you want, but to go out and execute a game plan and achieve at this level, you’ve displayed it all.”
