Mayor Sylvia Petillo presented Hopatcong High School golfer Shane Sickles the Mayor’s Award Wednesday in acknowledgement of his high school sports career.
Petillo said the award is presented to the athlete who brings the most attention to Hopatcong High School sports by their high level of performance.
Sickles, who graduated with the Hopatcong Class of 2012 was named Hopatcong's most valuable golfer in each of his four years in high school. He also earned three First Team All North Jersey Athletic Conference nominations, Petillo said.
