Sanford's Winter Teams Earn Numerous Honors

While spring sports are in full swing at Sanford, it is important to take a few moments to reflect on the many successes enjoyed by the student-athletes and their coaches during the winter season. Athletic Director Joan Samonisky, when asked about the winter teams, responded by stating: "I was thrilled to witness the success of our winter teams and student-athletes. Along with our state championship basketball teams, we also had many individual successes in swimming and wrestling. All told, Sanford School was represented by fourteen student-athletes on winter sports all-state teams! The excitement, energy, and success of the winter season has carried over to our spring season successes, as well. My "Warrior Pride" is bursting at the seams!”
Coaches present a member of their team with the Sportsmanship Award at the end of each season. When reviewing the following list of state and conference honorees, also take note of those students in both the Upper and Middle Schools who were recognized by their coaches for their sportsmanship. Sanford has always placed a great deal of emphasis, along with education and modeling, on the value of being a humble winner, a gracious loser, and a respectful fan. Being a good sport is a part of Sanford’s core values, and Samonisky is understandably proud to point out that, since 2012, the school has annually been awarded the DIAA State Champion of Sportsmanship. (The 2019 award winner will be announced later this year.)

The following is a list, by sport, of Sanford students who earned All-Conference and All-State honors—along with additional recognition—during the winter season.
