DIS Spring sports awards
by Jack Scott
Here we are in summer and the spring sports awards are just being handed out. It’s all the girls’ fault for being so successful.
Girls softball coach Terry Siebert handed out the following awards: Janelle Ciomei got a Batting Award for a .578 average and also a Defensive Award; Sydney Ouzts got a Pitching Award for her 0.21 ERA and 190 Strikeouts, and a Highest On Base Percentage for .650; Julie Hutchins got Rookie of the Year and Defensive Award; Chelsea Brown got a Slugging Award for 40 RBIs; Tegan McGuire got a Coach’s Award; Sarah Boutilier got a Coach’s Award; Holly Brewer got a Defensive Award; Abigail Grindle got a Step Up Award; Heidi Brewer got a Base Running Award; and Emily Cormier got a Versatility Award.
Boys baseball coach Darren Eaton wasn’t as generous, but he handed out the following awards: Hayden Ciomei got a Fielding Award; Connor Morey got a Batting Award for Best Average and also the Pitching Award; Sam Grindle got a Coach’s Award for Consistency, and Curtis Weed got the Coach’s Award for Hustle. Nathan Davis received the Stephen McDonald award and Jacob Starkey got the Jeffery Fowler Sportsmanship Award.
There weren’t any tennis awards passed out, but Esther Adams was selected to the Penobscot Valley Conference Class C All Star second team singles. I wasn’t able to verify it exactly, but I think she only lost one match all year. It was a bright spot for the tennis teams this year.
For baseball, Hayden Ciomei at first base, Joe Condon at third base, and Connor Morey at pitcher were named to the PVC All Star team. For softball, Heidi Brewer, Holly Brewer, Sydney Ouzts, Janelle Ciomei, and Chelsea Brown all were named to the PVC All Star team.
