It's a great honor to be a part of the Greece Athena Hall of Fame," said DiBitetto. "I'd like to thank Mr. Tom Mooney, the selection committee and the Booster Club for putting on a wonderful celebration for myself and the other inductees. It was a lot of fun being back at Athena and returning there brought back many incredible memories, from on and off the course and ice. I'm grateful I was able to share this day with many family members and friends. I've been extremely fortunate in my life, as I've been surrounded by so many remarkable people who have made a positive impact on my life, especially my parents, brother, teammates and coaches. I owe a lot to them because, without them, my accomplishments would not have been the same."
