Matt Oliver, Ryan Huber and John Timpson have been chosen as this year’s winners of Scarborough’s Philip T. Martin Youth Baseball Awards, which honor middle school players who show the same dedication to baseball as Coach Phil Martin did during his 33-year varsity career at Scarborough High.

Oliver is the developmental team selection, Huber is the eighth-grade winner, and Timpson is the seventh-grade winner. The three will receive their awards June 30 at the Scarborough High field.

 

Sydney Wight, a freshman at Cape Elizabeth High, has been selected as the winner of Coastal Maine Aquatics’ Jamie Higgins Sportsmanship Award. The award is named in honor of a local swimmer who died at the age of 11.

“Very simply, her acceptance of all athletes, her kindness, her enthusiasm, and her ability to keep swimming a priority is to be commended,” noted Leanne Gravel, CMA’s head coach.

“It’s hard to catch Sydney not smiling; sometimes I’ll notice her grin even when she’s in the middle of a grueling set.

“Sydney is a tough, tough competitor, but win or lose, she is gracious, and that is the essence of good sportsmanship.”

Coastal Maine Aquatics also announced its 2011 scholarship winners – Kip Gravel of Scarborough and Katherine Moreshead of Cheverus. Gravel will swim for La Salle University in Philadelphia and Moreshead will attend St. Anselm.
