Tigers coach Deb­bie Ea­ton de­scribed her as “an in­tel­li­gent, en­er­getic and in­de­pen­dently mo­ti­vated in­di­vid­ual.

“Olviia is best noted for her kind­ness and sin­cer­ity when it comes to help­ing her fel­low team­mates,” Ea­ton added. “She has truly been an as­set to our field hockey team this sea­son.”

Kowatch is a mem­ber of the

and is a mem­ber of the Stu­dent-Ath­lete Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee that rep­re­sents Sec­tion 9 for the New York State Pub­lic High School Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion.

won four Or­ange County In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion Di­vi­sion I dualmeet races in Septem­ber for the Tigers.

Hines is con­stanly chal­leng­ing him­self and his team to be bet­ter.

“Jayson is his own big­gest critic as well as as his big­gest sup­porter,” Kingston coach Joe Cahill said. “He be­lieves in his abil­i­ties, be­cause he un­der­stands what he has done to make it to this point.”
