The Verona High School Sports Boosters held their annual senior awards banquet on Tuesday, June 7. The event honors VHS’ senior athletes for all of their athletic accomplishments in high school and serves as an acknowledgement of Verona’s athletic accomplishments of the 2015-2016 school year. The event’s guest speaker was Pat Sempier, a VHS graduate who was a 2016 inductee into the VHS Alumni Association’s Hall of Fame and well known as football’s “Kicking Guru”.

At the banquet, Amanda Maguire was named Female Athlete of the Year and Mark Riggio was named Male Athlete of the Year. The current year awardees receive their honors from the previous year’s recipients, who were Julia Ashley and Frank Ferrari.

Angel Barkley and Chris Yeates were awarded the Maroon & White Award, and Director of Athletics Glenn Cesa was honored on his retirement.
