TUXEDO PARK — A dozen Tuxedo Park School students – field hockey, soccer, volleyball and tennis athletes – were honored at the school’s annual Fall Sports Assembly on Nov. 20.

The athletes live in Franklin Lakes and Ringwood in North Jersey and Monroe, New Windsor, Tuxedo, Tuxedo Park, Slate Hill and Warwick in New York.

The school recognizes students at two awards events each year, the Fall Sports Assembly and the Spring Athletic Awards Dinner.

“Athletics, in addition to a complement of other extracurricular activities, are very important to students and families in our school community,” said Head of School Todd Stansbery. “On the fields and courts, we celebrate effort as well as success so our students know that doing their best matters just as much as winning.”

Field hockeyField hockey players who received awards were Ellie T., Ringwood, N.J. (Most Improved Player); Jordan U., Franklin Lakes, N.J., (Most Valuable Player); and Ellie D., Tuxedo (Fathers’ Sportsmanship Award).

The Sportsmanship Plaque is awarded to the field hockey player who best represents sportsmanship on and off the field.

“This athlete must demonstrate fairness, be respectful of her competitors, and take responsibility for her actions,” said Tuxedo Park School Athletic Director Dawn Kranzo. “Ellie embodies those attributes. She supported her teammates with kind words all season and never gave up, even when the going got tough. All season, her positive attitude, determination, and daily work ethic were examples of admirable sportsmanship.”

MVP and soccer awardsThe Most Valuable Player (Melhado Cup) honor went to soccer team Captain Henry Y. from Franklin Lakes, N.J.

“Receiving this award makes me feel very proud," he said. "At the start of the season, I really wasn’t thinking about being captain. However, I am excited to co-lead my team to another successful season."

Other soccer award recipients were Cameron E., Ringwood, N.J., (Most Improved Player); Owen D., Tuxedo Park (Coaches Award).
