Bellport High School student-athletes and 2019 graduates Grace Minikel and Dwan Trent were honorees at the prestigious Butch Dellecave Awards. The 19th annual Butch Dellecave Awards ceremony, held in memory of coach Gaetano “Butch” Dellecave, is a partnership between local Suffolk County School Districts and organizers of the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, the Butch Dellecave Foundation and Newsday. 

Athletic directors from 66 Suffolk County school district athletic programs are encouraged to nominate one male and one female from the senior class who are not only top athletes, but also demonstrate academic talent and a commitment to local community service. A tri-sport athlete, Dwan received All-County honors in football, winter track and spring track. He was also named Athlete of the Year and will be attending SUNY Morrisville in the fall. Grace is a three-season runner who excelled in long-distance competition. She earned All-Division honors during multiple seasons and earned a Division II athletic scholarship to Adelphi University. 

The district congratulates Dwan and Grace on this outstanding athletic accomplishment.
