During the Jan. 24 meeting of the Sachem Board of Education, the board and administration celebrated a successful fall athletics season. Several fall teams made it to the playoffs and dozens of student-athletes were awarded with post-season honors. Additionally, every Sachem team earned the designation of a scholar-athlete team for the fall 2023 season. This honor from the New York State Public High School Athletic Association recognizes teams with 75% of their roster having a combined GPA greater than or equal to a 90.

The board first recognized four Sachem coaches who received post-season Coach of the Year honors. Congratulations to East girls varsity volleyball coach Amanda Schmohl, East girls junior varsity volleyball coach Christina Loffredo, North varsity field hockey coach Carly Sharp and North football coach Dave Caputo. Following the coach recognitions, students who received post-season honors including All-County, All-Division, All-League, All-Long Island and All-State were celebrated.

Next, Kristen Fieger and Clodagh Harte were honored for being named Teachers of the Year from the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Suffolk Zone. Ms. Fieger from Samoset Middle School was named the Middle School Health Education Teacher of the Year and Clodagh Harte from Tamarac Elementary School was designated Elementary School Physical Education Teacher of the Year.

The Suffolk Zone also thanked the district for hosting its annual conference at Sachem High School East this past November. More than 1,100 health and physical educators, as well as athletic directors, came together at High School East for a professional conference filled with 60 presentations taking place across the building. Suffolk Zone President Lori Hewlett presented the district with a plaque as a token of appreciation for its hospitality and advocacy.
