The fall season saw over 315 athletes participating on 15 teams. To celebrate the accomplishments of each of the athletes and their teams a Sports Awards Assembly was held on November 19 in the Schreiber High School. Athletes and their families filled the auditorium to honor not only the special award winners but also each athlete. It was also an opportunity to thank those who help support the athletes, the parents and coaches.
The Athletic Association of Port Washington provided refreshments following the presentation.
Chris Koh received the Leo Costello Award named in honor of a former Port Washington football coach.

This year's recipient (for the second time in a row) is Lindsay Levin. She is an outstanding athlete who embodies all the qualities this award represents.
