Wheatley Senior Tennis Player Among the Best
As a junior, Fink went undefeated during the regular season. He qualified to compete in the New York State Tennis Championships and defeated his first four opponents to advance to the Singles Championship in which he lost a hard fought battle to a representative from Westchester County. In recognition of the sportsmanlike manner in which Fink represented Wheatley during the State Championships and, for the humility he displayed during victory and his graciousness in defeat, he received the Sportsmanship Award. This award was presented by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. The sportsmanship program was initiated several years ago to promote the ideals of good sportsmanship. It is awarded to selected teams and individuals that distinguish themselves during NYS championship tournaments.

Six other teams also progressed to the championships but lost in the finals, including the '97 baseball team.
