The Berlin/New Lebanon Winter Athletic Awards Ceremony was held in the Berlin Middle-High School auditorium on March 5. 

The evening opened with remarks from Berlin Middle-High School Principal Dr. Cathie Allain and New Lebanon Athletic Director Josh Noble.

Both Dr. Allain and Mr. Noble commented on the wonderful feedback they have received this season from other district’s coaches, parents and administrators regarding the sportsmanship of the Berlin and New Lebanon athletes. This feedback was echoed throughout the evening by the coaches.

Before the awards ceremony, Berlin’s Class of 2023 hosted a Pre-Winter Sports Awards dinner with many teachers, parents and students volunteering their time. One of the dinner’s organizers, Ms. Karen Day, expressed how appreciative she was for all the effort put into the successful fundraising dinner.

Thanks go to the Booster Club for their hard work, organization, fundraising and dedication to the student athletes of Berlin and New Lebanon.

Congratulations to the Berlin and New Lebanon student athletes on a great Winter Sports Season!
