Hail to the Champion

Congratulations to Ossining High School senior James Brundage on winning the New York State championship for wrestling in the 160 Lb weight class this past weekend. He is only the 2nd Ossining student athlete to win at the state tournament. I wrestled in high school and it was one of the best experiences of my life. These are superb athletes, and to be the best in a state the size of New York is special.

This is wonderful news for the Ossining high school athletic program and for the whole community. According to the local paper, James is interested in attending Harvard, Lehigh or Virginia. I wish him the best of luck. Teammate Clay Neivert placed 5th in the 171 Lb class.

The people of Ossining should be proud of both young men.
