At the end of the season at Tabor Academy, Hockey Unlimited presented three special recognition awards.
Max Ohrenberger of Rochester received the Most Improved Player award. Tim Dyer, Managing Director & Head Coach of Hockey Unlimited, stated while presenting the award, “Max has shown that hard work and dedication can pay handsome dividends.” Dyer went on to say “Max’s skating and related hockey skills have improved almost every session he’s been with us. We are pleased to have him on our roster.”
The Hutchinson Family Sportsmanship Award was presented to Sophie Schiappa of Wareham. This award is named after the longtime Southeastern Massachusetts hockey family for “outstanding contributions to the program relative to sportsmanship and preserving the true spirit and ‘love of the game’ of hockey.” Coach Jim Hutchinson, Jr. stated “I am very pleased to see Sophie recognized by Hockey Unlimited in this way. The sportsmanship, fellowship and friendly spirit she brings to our organization clearly contributes to the culture we like to see in our young people – both on and off the ice.” Jim Hutchinson, Sr. the patriarch of the Hutchinson family, was on hand to present the award to Sophie … whose father, Skip, and sister, Norah, are also very involved with the program.
Also, the Comeback Player of the Year award was presented to Alicia Wohlgemuth of Halifax. Coach Patrick Hutchinson (and Hockey Unlimited Hall of Famer) noted … “I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Alicia the past few years, and it was impressive to see her bounce back so strongly this season after a nasty knee injury shortened her time on the ice with us last year.”
