Among 158 senior athletes in the class of 2023, many awarded All League and Section titles, along with 26 student athletes that are committed to play their sport in college, it takes a lot to stand out. Samantha Rosuck, Jason Cox, Shawn Rosenblatt, and Jack Ramsay were recognized at the Mamaroneck Senior Athlete Awards on June 5th for going above and beyond and saw their dedication to Mamaroneck athletics acknowledged and cherished. There were over ten athletes who took home awards, and they all have made tremendous impacts on our community. 

Two athletes that have been a part of Mamaroneck sports since they were little kids, Ramsay and Rosuck both won the Old Timers Award, given out to a male and female athlete who started playing in the youth programs and ended up making it to varsity sports. Rosuck was a three year varsity softball player and was a captain during her junior and senior years. She is one of the best players that Mamaroneck Softball has ever had, striking out at a remarkably low rate. Ramsay was a tri-sport athlete playing football, hockey, and lacrosse. He was a captain for all three sports, demonstrating leadership qualities that he will carry to Cornell University, where he is committed to play football.

Among the other award winners, there were two senior athletes that won the Charles E. Lanza and Joseph T. Downey awards for the best overall athletes, Jason Cox and Shawn Rosenblatt. Cox was a tri sport varsity athlete that excelled everywhere he played. Boasting a 2-0 record on the mound as a pitcher, he also played basketball and football, in which he led the Tigers as Quarterback to their first ever appearance in the Section 1 Finals along with a League Championship, cementing this season as the greatest ever in program history. Rosenblatt played both soccer and lacrosse and dominated in both sports. As captain of the Lacrosse team, she scored over 100 goals in her career, an incredible achievement that makes her more than worthy of this award. She also was a huge part in helping run The Jungle, the social media platform that keeps the community informed of the scores of all varsity sports throughout the entire year.

Other award winners from the night included Andrew Glinski, Sydney McMullen, Rhett Chambers, Lily Margoshes, Haruka Inoue, Henry Bennett, and Carlie Spano. Valedictorian Melanie Huang and Salutatorian Church Moore were also recognized for being the male and female athletes with the highest grade point averages, winning the William E. Warren Scholar/Athlete Award at the MHS Annual Awards Ceremony two weeks prior. All of these incredible athletes gave everything they had, serving as a model for young Mamaroneck athletes for their leadership, dedication, and talent. The Globe wishes them the best of luck in their college adventures!
