Last month was a busy one for the Peekskill City School District's Athletic Department, which hosted both the Fall Sports Award Dinner for students, as well as the Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner for alumni.

The Fall Sports Award Dinner was held in the Peekskill Middle School cafeteria and featured an award ceremony honoring our Modified, Junior Varsity and Varsity players. After the dinner and the award ceremony took place in the cafeteria, players, coaches and parents met in classrooms to discuss highlights from the season.

"We're very proud of our players here this evening," said PCSD Athletic Director Lou Panazanaro. "You've all shown incredible spirit this season and we're here to honor all of your hard work."

The Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner took place at Colonial Terrace in Cortlandt Manor and celebrated the induction of James "Starr" Dennin (Class of 1933), Joseph Walsh (Class of 1955), Tony Fraich (Class of 1958), Greg Turrone (Class of 1973), and Carol Olsen (Class of 1985). The 1933-34 Boys Basketball Team and the 1967-68 Boys Basketball Team were inducted into the Hall of Fame that evening as well.

"The Athletic Hall of Fame dinner was a great success" said Panzanaro.  "The honorees received well-deserved recognition for their accomplishments and I loved hearing all of their stories."
