Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on Google+
New Hampton School’s Spring Athletics teams took time to celebrate their student-athletes on Tuesday, May 14. This ceremony honored the efforts, strengths, and grit of these students who have endured some unseasonably cold weather, rigorous training, and a tightly packed academic and athletic schedule since returning from March break. With tournaments continuing this week, the season continues for many of these teams, and the community welcomed the celebratory evening as a time for reflection and recognition.
Ms. Koester presented the awards for the Equestrian team to Zoe Davol and Addis Levine.

Named Award Descriptions


This trophy, established by the Shaw family in 1967, honors the three generations who played baseball at New Hampton School: Lewis Shaw, 1897; Paul Shaw, 1937; and Jim Shaw, 1963. Jim, a pitcher on the 1963 team that compiled a 13-1 record, continued his baseball career at Dartmouth College and later returned to New Hampton School to both teach and coach baseball from 1967-69. This award is presented to the player whose outstanding ability, effort, and attitude contribute the most to the success of their team.


The Fusick Award was established in honor of Carey Fusick, the student-athlete who founded softball at New Hampton School. In 1994, with the financial backing of her family and the assistance of some dedicated faculty and peers, Ms. Fusick dug out the bases, erected the backstop, and dressed the players for that inaugural season. That quality of sheer determination and tenacity distinguishes each year’s recipient of the Fusick Award.


The Anna Menke Women’s Lacrosse Award was established to honor the dedication, love, and passion for the game of lacrosse by Anna Menke, class of 2012, who distinguished herself during her New Hampton and collegiate lacrosse careers. Her ability to hold herself and her teammates at the highest standard will be remembered by any Husky that stepped on the field with her. She always put her team first while working to better her own game. The Anna Menke Lacrosse Award recognizes the women’s lacrosse player that exhibits both superior athletic skill and dedication to the team, all while setting a high standard of sportsmanship, leadership, and work ethic by which the rest of the team must compete.


Named in honor of the late Lansing Bicknell, former New Hampton School teacher, athletic director, and dedicated tennis coach, the Bicknell Tennis Award recognizes the member of the New Hampton School Varsity Tennis Team who best demonstrates skill, determination, and sportsmanship—qualities that Bicknell demanded from his players.


In 1965 Blake Babcock, then a first-year history teacher at New Hampton School, started competitive lacrosse on campus. A player at Hamilton College, he brought his great knowledge of the game and love of the sport in time for the NHS 1966 spring season. He fielded many competitive and league championship squads in the early days of the game, and will long be remembered for his well-coached, disciplined teams. To commemorate Babcock’s accomplishments, this award recognizes the player whose ability and leadership has contributed most to the team in a given season.
