St. Andrew’s Anthony Polite: Small-schools basketball player of year

Anthony Polite closed his high school basketball career with a flourish this season. The senior combo guard averaged 20 points, 11 rebounds and four assists a game, and helped lead the Scots to a district championship.

Boca’s Grace Marko, Rachel Levy: All-Area basketball co-players of year

Boca’s Grace Marko, Rachel Levy: All-Area basketball co-players of year

Despite the state championship medals hanging around their necks, what happened in Lakeland still doesn’t feel real for Boca Raton seniors Rachel Levy and Grace Marko.

Forest Hill’s Trevor Gawlikowski Post’s big-school soccer player of year

Forest Hill’s Trevor Gawlikowski Post’s big-school soccer player of year

Trevor Gawlikowski’s father told him at the beginning of the season that he could get a car if he scored six goals in a game. Gawlikowski didn’t hit that mark all season, but when Forest Hill took on Lake Worth Christian in the final game of the regular season, he finally bagged half a dozen in a game the Falcons won 10-0. But still, Gawlikowski remains carless. “I didn’t get...

Wellington’s LeeAnn Hewitt named Post All-Area weightlifter of the year

Wellington’s LeeAnn Hewitt named Post All-Area weightlifter of the year

Eating and drinking on the weightlifting floor isn’t uncommon. Lifters need to make sure they’re fully hydrated and have enough energy to lift more than their body weight. But Wellington’s LeeAnn Hewitt has another reason. She’s diabetic and needs to make sure her blood sugar doesn’t crash while she’s lifting. Fortunately, she knows what her body needs and has never...

Wellington’s Trent Frazier named All-Area basketball player of year

Wellington’s Trent Frazier named All-Area basketball player of year

Cardinal Newman’s Milan Morris named Post’s All-Area player of the year

Cardinal Newman’s Milan Morris named Post’s All-Area player of the year

On the basketball court, Cardinal Newman’s Milan Morris works with surgical precision. She knows the exact release point for her shot to swish effortlessly through the basket, which subtle movement will draw a foul when she drives to the rim, where an errant shot will come off the backboard so she can grab a rebound. Being exact will bode well for Morris, the Palm Beach Post’s Small Schools...
Boca Christian’s Stefan Kneffel is Post’s All-Area soccer player of year

Boca Christian’s Stefan Kneffel is Post’s All-Area soccer player of year

Stefan Kneffel is only a sophomore and has already scored more than 100 goals in his high school career, but one from last season stands out. Boca Raton Christian was playing Somerset Canyons in the regional quarterfinal on coach David Weil’s birthday, and Kneffel made sure his coach would not be upset that night. “I told him, ‘I’m going to score for your birthday,’ &rdquo...

Jorge Loy of Forest Hill named Post’s All-Area wrestler of the year

Jorge Loy of Forest Hill named Post’s All-Area wrestler of the year

Timing can be everything in sports. Jorge Loy knows this all too well. The Forest Hill wrestler sustained a concussion midway through the 2015 Florida High School Wrestling State Championships, and failed to place. The following year, Loy sustained another concussion before the state tournament. Again, he failed to place. “It really put me back,” Loy said of the second concussion, which...
