Palm Beach Day Academy’s Athletic Department celebrated the athletic achievements of the 7th – 9th Grade girls at their Annual Sports Banquet, held at the Sailfish Club overlooking the marina at sunset.
Athletes, their parents, and several members of the PBDA administration and faculty spent the evening reflecting on the girls’ many wins and learnings on the field and courts throughout the ’18-’19 year. The evening began with opening remarks by Athletic Director Paul Cicio who, alongside Patti Griffin, honored the Walter H. Butler Field Day Captains. This year’s award went to the winning Pelican Captain Ava Tarone, as well as Flamingo Captains Daniela Russo, Virginia Keen, and Grace Zingaro. Following, the coaches honored this year’s Field Day Maddock Winner Ava Tarone.
