Riverhead High School senior Ryan Bitzer was the only repeat winner Thursday evening when Times/Review Newsgroup presented its 2012-13 athlete of the year awards to the top female and male athletes from six area high schools.

Bitzer, a three-sport standout in football, basketball and lacrosse who will go on to play lacrosse for Stony Brook University, became the first Riverhead boy to win the award more than once. He was declared a co-winner along with Matt Crohan, a senior pitcher for Riverhead’s baseball team. The night before, Crohan received the Yastrzemski Award, which goes to the top baseball player in Suffolk County.

Co-winners were announced for Riverhead’s female athlete of the year as well, with senior basketball player Shanice Allen and junior Carolyn Carrera (soccer, basketball, lacrosse) sharing that honor.
