Margaretville Central School athletes along with their coaches, families and community boosters turned out for the school’s annual athletic banquet last Friday night, June 7. After a dinner of barbeque chicken, members of each school team were recognized for their accomplishments both on the field and in the classrooms.

Athletic Director Tracy Reither emceed the evening, honoring her predecessor and the guest speaker, Jeremey Marks. Coach John Bernhardt set the tone for the evening when he spoke of a season full of “moments,” that he would never forget. Stressing that the joy of athletics comes from participation, not from winning, he talked about special moments. Bernhardt mentioned moments in practice and moments on bus rides as well as moments in defeat and those in which he watched students suddenly picked up a new skill or reached out to help a teammate.

Athletes from 12 different teams were recognized and Larry Hull was honored with the MCS Athletic Appreciation Award. Derek Zellner and Denali Finkle were honored with the Nate Dougherty Memorial Award while Kobe Anfimovas and Kayla Perry took home the Henry Dietrich Awards.
