Student athletes, coaches, and family members packed into Winfield’s Restaurant on Tuesday night, May 31, for the Block Island School’s Annual Sports Banquet.

Athletic Director Rob Closter told the crowd of 50 that coaches provide teachable moments that will be remembered by the student athletes for the rest of their lives. Closter said that both the athletes and the coaches at the school had a successful year.

The Athletics Department hosted the event, where the school’s varsity coaches spoke. They included John Tarbox (baseball), Shea Butcher (softball), Laurie McTeague (basketball) and Lawrence Kikuchi (soccer).
