New Jersey Interscholastic Sailing Association Sportsmanship Award winners for 2018: Zoe Papier of Chatham and Patrick Modin of Rumson-Fair Haven

"Zoe Papier is a captain of the Chatham Sailing Team," Groskoph said. "In her role as captain, she helps coordinate weekly activities of the team and provides ongoing leadership example. However, Zoe goes well beyond that. She regularly ensures that the fleet of FJ's owned by Perth Amboy High School, which Chatham uses, are cared for and properly put away in a neat and orderly fashion.

"She also reaches out to Perth Amboy sailors at each practice to make sure that they each have a partner to sail with, often combining with Chatham to make even pairs. Zoe is a pleasure to work with and a huge asset to the Raritan Bay high school sailing program." 

The CHS Co-Ed Varsity Sailing Team, which sails both fall and spring seasons, began competing in spring 2014 and recently wrapped up its 9th season as a member of the New Jersey Interscholastic Sailing Association.
