Standout Athletes Honored

Babylon High School seniors Brendan Laing and Kristen Altieri have been named Suffolk Zone Award winners by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

Each year, the association honors a male and female athlete from each school district in the Suffolk Zone chapter for their outstanding physical education achievements. Students are also selected based upon scholarship in the classroom, outstanding character, leadership, and being a role model in class.

Brendan, a scholar-athlete, is a member of the Babylon basketball and tennis teams. Kristen is a member of the school’s basketball and soccer teams. Both are high achievers in the classroom and are enrolled in the school’s challenging Advanced Placement courses.
