School basketball standouts honored: Athletic and academic awards given

The Shelter Island High School Basketball team finished its season in February with a .500 record.

Like other area schools, the Islanders faced the challenges of a season impacted by the COVID restrictions.

Traditionally, the season would be followed by a basketball banquet where players would receive awards.

The banquet was not held due to COVID, but on Monday, Coach Peter Miedema presented the players with their plaques, recognizing all-league honors as well as academic achievement. 

“I had the pleasure of coaching those boys for three levels, junior high, junior varsity and varsity,” Mr. Miedema said. “A great group of young men, and I’m very proud of them as well as the entire team.”
