The winter sports season at New Milford High School climaxed April 7 with an upbeat ceremony in the school theater.

On hand to be honored for their achievements during the 2013-14 campaign were several hundred student-athletes from boys' and girls' basketball, cheerleading, dance, gymnastics, ice hockey, boys' swimming, boys' and girls' indoor track and field, and wrestling.

The event was hosted by NMHS athletic director Keith Lipinsky, who welcomed each varsity coach to the stage to recount the seasons experienced by each of the programs.

Many of the coaches took the opportunity to introduce their student-athletes for their athletic and academic performances.

The Green Wave wrestling and gymnastics teams earned the spotlight for their South-West Conference championships.

The matmen also won the state Class L title.
