The district is pleased to congratulate Harborfields High School student-athletes Ryan Scanlon and Ella Simkins for receiving the prestigious Dellecave Award at a special breakfast awards ceremony on June 12.

Each year, the Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame presents the top male and female high school student-athletes in Suffolk County with the Dellecave Award. The award is given in memory of Guy Dellecave, a former guidance counselor, teacher and coach in the Connetquot Central School District and one of the founders of the Suffolk County Hall of Fame. Nominees are chosen on the basis of outstanding athletic ability as well as having displayed exceptional character and integrity. In addition to this honor, each award recipient is provided with a $1,000 scholarship.

The two gifted athletes left their mark in the Harborfields athletics program with their exceptional performances. Scanlon was a devoted member of the cross-country and track and field teams for his four years of high school. He will attend Boston College in the fall where he will continue practicing his sport. Simkins was a member of several sports teams. Most notably, she excelled on the girls lacrosse team at the varsity level for the past four seasons. In the fall, she will attend Syracuse University on an athletic scholarship for girls lacrosse.
