At last week’s Suffolk County Girls Lacrosse Dinner, a few of Whitman's lacrosse members were honored with awards. President of the Suffolk County Girls Lacrosse Coaches Association and Whitman Varsity Girls Lacrosse Coach John Labate is extremely proud of this year’s award winners: Kristen Cummings and Nicole Kleet. "Both of these players are exceptional athletes, and even better is that they are both amazing people," said Coach Labate. "I am a better person and a better coach for having the opportunity to share the field with Kristen and Nicole." 

Another honor bestowed at the awards dinner was Division I-JV Coach of the Year. Walt Whitman JV Coach Caitlin Martin, in her second year as the junior varsity girls lacrosse coach, compiled a 12-3 record and was the recipient of this year’s award. "It is a real honor to be named coach of the year," said Coach Martin. "I am lucky to have been the leader of a great group of girls who, in my eyes, were the JV Team of the Year.”
