Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
Budget cuts across the state put the future of some sports programs in jeopardy.
The first things to go are typically the extras, like awards banquets.
But section 4 wrestlers are given another awarding opportunity.
Worldwide Sport Supply hosted the Section IV Wrestling Award Ceremony in their Vestal offices today.
Scholarships were awarded to Erik Ruckle of Union-Endicott, Ryan D'Arcy of Newark Valley and Brock Kenney of Greene.
The Worldwide Sport Supply / ASICS Section IV Wrestler of the Year Award will be given to Kyle Kelly of Chenango Forks.
Kelly is just a sophomore, so he says awards like this are just motivation to defend his state title and undefeated season next year.
