Honored for Spirit in Sport

Congratulations to South Woods Middle School Earth Science teacher and Syosset High School Winter Track and Field coach Chris Meyers, who was recently awarded the Colbert Britt "Spirit of the Sport" award, given to a coach for their dedication in track and field.  Meyers was given the award for his work specifically focused on the development and implementation of the weight throw, which is a new event, introduced last year. He has provided clinics for athletes and coaches and has advised Nassau County Section VIII on the proper practicing methods for this event.  Meyers accepted the award at the Section VIII annual award dinner for athletes, parents and coaches.
