Two Seniors Take Home Tiger Award

Justin Herzfeld '19 and Mia Composto '19 took home the 2019 Tiger Award for Overall Excellence.

Two seniors were honored with the Tiger Award for Overall Excellence at the 2019 Upper School Sports Dinner. The annual event, which was held Tuesday, May 21, also saw a number of Bay Ridge Prep student-athletes honored for their spirit, leadership and skills in various sports programs.

The Tiger Award, the highest honor given to a senior student-athlete, went this year to Mia Composto and Justin Herzfeld. As the award inscription reads, all four were highlighted for their  "positive character, sportsmanship, team leadership, school spirit" and being "one of the most quintessential student-athletes to grace the classrooms, courts, and fields of Bay Ridge Preparatory School."

Senior Samantha McLoughlin was awarded the Tiger Athletics Devotion Award for her participation in a sport in every season during all four years of Upper School.
