Fall Sports Awards Presented This Week
Fall Sports Awards Presented This Week

The Upper School gathered this week for a recap of all Fall Sports and the presentation of awards to selected athletes from each team. Upper School Athletics Director Tim Williams, resplendent in his PDS Panther-patterned sports jacket, presided over the celebration of overall standings, big-game highlights, hard-working coaches and individual accomplishments of varsity and junior varsity boys and girls competing on teams including tennis, cross country, field hockey and soccer.

Williams hailed in particular the fifth straight NJISAA Prep B state championship of the Varsity Girls Soccer team, noting that their win this season boosts PDS total championships across all teams to 16 in the past three years. In congratulating the award-winning athletes across all teams, he noted the special qualities deserving of recognition for the award categories, including leadership, sportsmanship, most improved players, unsung heroes, and players who contributed the most to the overall success of teams and programs. As has been the tradition, the celebration ended with the always-entertaining Fall Sports video slideshow.

Congratulations to all team members and coaches for a fantastic fall season of sports at PDS! -Melanie Shaw
