Honor of the Game Award
The Honor the Game Award is an award that is designed to honor the student athlete that sets high standards and no matter what sticks to those standards. Honoring the Game gets to what we call the ROOTS of positive play, where ROOTS stands for respect for rules, opponents, officials, teammates and one’s self. Honoring the Game is another definition for sportsmanship – it’s about representing our athletic programs with class and excellence. Each team nominates one player that they felt best characterized Honoring the Game throughout their season. We present an award to one male and one female from all of our athletic programs. Their names will go on a perpetual plaque that will be hung in our Hall of Champions.
Please find below the list of nominees from each team. I would like to personally congratulate each and everyone of them for being nominated for this award. It is certainly high praise from their team's coach and in all cases well deserved!

After each season, the Honor the Game award goes to one male and one female from all of our athletic programs. Their names will go on a perpetual plaque that will be hung in our hall of champions. I want to congratulate this year's award winners:
Our Female Award Winner is Jenna Gorecki! Coach Phillips said Jenna has led from day one even as a freshman! She was the standard bearer for grit, determination, and perseverance. She is the first on the field and the last to leave. As gaudy as her statistics are they pale in comparison to the intangibles that Jenna brings as a 3 year captain. She is truly a servant leader and uncommon individual!
Our Male Award Winner is Philip Gorun. Coach Garofoli said in all of the years he has coached tennis, he has never had a player like Philip. He is a special player and person. Philip respects his teammates, coaches and opponents like nobody I have coached before. Teammates look up to him and love him as a person and player. It has been a pleasure to coach him!
Congrats again to Jenna and Philip and to all nominees
