During the annual M-Club Dinner on Wednesday, Class I students were presented awards for their outstanding performance in athletics.
Football standout Robert Gilmore received the Robert Saltonstall Medal. Over Milton’s history, the Saltonstall has indicated “a distinguished record in all-around physical activity, with emphasis on leadership by example, conscientious training, good body mechanics, and observance of the code of the true sportsman.” In addition to his feats on the football field, Robert broke the School’s long-standing discus and shot put records in track and field.
Nicola Young, an outstanding athlete in soccer, basketball and track, received the Priscilla Bailey Award. The award recognizes a girl who “has been a most valuable asset to Milton Academy athletics and community, and who demonstrates exceptional individual skills and teamwork as well as sportsmanship.”
Jonathan Lawson, who was a football ISL All-Star, received the Alfred Elliott Award. This award honors a boy whose “extraordinary self-sacrifice and unselfish devotion to the best interests of his teams;a boy who, regardless of skill, with inspiring example—either in practice or in competition—has given most unsparingly of himself for the good of all.”
Erika Lamere, who played field hockey, basketball and softball, won the Dorothy J Sullivan Award. This girls’ award signifies “good sportsmanship, leadership, dedication and commitment to athletics at Milton,” as well as being an “inspiration and model for others.”
