On Monday, December 03, 2012, the Arthur L. Johnson Athletic Department held their 2012 Fall Athletic Awards. The evening, sponsored by the Crusader Athletic Booster Club, was held in the Arthur L. Johnson Auditorium.
All the Fall Athletic Teams and their seasons were highlighted by their coaches while handing out letters and awards to the student athletes. Over 160 varsity athletic letters were handed out throughout the evening, as participation in athletics at Arthur L. Johnson High School continues to grow.
The program continued with the Student Athlete Award, which was presented by the Principal of Arthur L. Johnson High School, Mr. Rick Delmonaco. The Student Athlete Award is given out each athletic season to a student athlete that is not only a champion on the field, but in the classroom as well. The 2012 Fall Student Athlete award recipient was Bianca Briscese.
The evening culminated with the announcement of the Team Most Valuable Players. The MVPs were: Cross Country – Dan Mooney and Jessica Vaccaro, Field Hockey – Jackie Calo, Football – Anthony Travisano, Gymnastics – Bianca Briscese, Boys’ Soccer - Nick Stolarz, Girls’ Soccer – Samantha Rodrigues, Tennis – Annabella Ross, Volleyball – Erin Roach, and Cheerleading – Amanda Ciccone.
The Supervisor of Athletics, Health, and Physical Education, Gus Kalikas, had this to say about the event: “Once again, our Fall Awards Program was a successful evening as it allows the District, Administration, and Coaches the opportunity to acknowledge a wonderful Fall Sports Season as well as recognize both student athletes and their parents alike for all that they have accomplished this past Fall athletic season.”
