Four Avon High athletes earn All-State honors this spring

CP canterbury a, graphicAVON – Four Avon High athletes earned All-State honors for their performance on the field this spring.

Geoff Kirk, who won the State Open titles in the shot put and discus, was named to the All-State team along with golfers Jake Avery, Ryan Gorman and Tyler Hahn.

Kirk had an outstanding season throwing the shot, discus and javelin for Avon. He swept all three events at the CCC Central meet. At the Class MM meet, he won the discus and took second in the javelin and shot. He won the shot and discus at the State Open and went on to take second in the discus at the New England championships.

Avery, Gorman and Hahn helped Avon win the CCC Central White title with a 6-0 record and finish tied for third in the CIAC Division II tournament. Avery’s third place finish at the Division II meet earned him a berth at the New England championships where he was fourth with a 74.

In other sports achievements this spring, Michael Rostenberg from Avon’s ultimate (frisbee) team was named to the state Division II All-Star team. The Falcons finished 14-9 this season.

Rower Grace Baldauf was one of 21 rowers from around the country to participate in the 2016 U.S. Rowing Junior Women’s National team performance camp. She is the first girl from Avon to be invited to participate with the team.
