WESTON, Conn. The Aspetuck Wildcats Association celebrated its 2011 season with a tribute banquet for its national champion U-13 cheerleading team and its seventh- and eighth-grade football teams , which both advanced to the league semi-finals.
The association also handed out its annual scholarships to six young men and women who have demonstrated excellence in academics and athletics. The 2011 Aspetuck Wildcats Association Scholarship winners include (pictured above): Allyson Stillman (Redding), Emma Nayden (Weston), Jacqueline Goetz (Weston), Matthew Pompa (Easton), Steve Gordon (Easton) and James Milne (Weston).
