Proctor Athletics: Spring 2015 Awards

Posted by Scott Allenby

05/22/2015

Proctor's spring athletic season has come to a close! In assembly on Friday, we recognized Marvin Award winners and outstanding team accomplishments. Among those notable performances were Varsity Baseball's best record in 10 years (10-6), a Lakes Region Championship for Girls' Tennis in #1 doubles, and strong showing by our cycling team throughout the league series this spring including Scott Johannen winning the boys' Class B season title!  

Each athletic season requires an incredible amount of dedication from an entire team of adults in the community. Obviously the work of coaches teaching, motivating, and training athletes is critical to Proctor's athletic success. However, there are others who quietly make sure each game day is pulled off without a glitch. Athletic trainers Chris and Kelly work to get athletes back on the field after injury, while Becky and Gregor are wizards of coordinating travel and field times in the athletic office. Meanwhile, Trish and Jill in the athletic equipment room make sure our teams are competing with the best equipment possible and our Maintenance Department works hard all winter to plow and prepare fields for the spring season. Collectively, we are incredibly proud of the team of coaches and staff that teams with parents volunteers to maximize our student experiences each afternoon.

Each term, the Marvin Award is given to a boy and girl who are new to Proctor for their leadership, sportsmanship, and ability. This spring's Marvin Awards were presented to: 

KATELYN BARTON '18 – SOFTBALL

Katelyn Barton has been an anchor behind the plate for the softball team. Katelyn arrived for spring training camp with an open mind and a positive attitude; the only freshman on a team filled with many upper classwomen. She has worked hard all season supporting Abbie Young on the mound, and orchestrating plays and pitches from her perch at home plate. Katelyn has also stepped up and played a key role in the infield when circumstances warranted switching things up on our opponents.  Offensively, "Bart," "Barb," "Barbara," or Katelyn, all of which are names she responds to, occupies the clean-up spot in our batting order. She has excellent power in her swing, and is an aggressive, heads up base runner.  She is a natural athlete with a passion for the game of softball. We look forward to watching Katelyn grow over the next three years, not only as an outstanding athlete, but also as a citizen of the greater Proctor community. Thanks, Bart, for a great season! 

BILLY ARGUS '15 – GOLF

Billy was a rock on the golf team this spring. He never complained about the weather or the slow start to the season. A quiet but focused individual, Billy has played #1 for us all season. Often drawing the best players in New England as opponents, he battles hard and competes until the last putt falls.  Billy leads by example on the course, never distracted or upset, and is always focused on the next opportunity. He possesses a level of mental toughness that few have at his age, and sets an example for his teammates through these actions.  Billy has had a great experience at Proctor, and is off to St. A's to continue his golf career.
