GRAHAMSVILLE The Tri-Valley Central School celebrated the accomplishments of its athletes on the basketball court, wrestling mats and ski slopes during its Winter Sports Awards Ceremony on March 14 in the school auditorium.
T-V Athletic Director Derek Adams began the ceremony by thanking the many coaches, players, parents and other key people who were involved with the school’s winter sports program.
“We are one of the smallest schools in our division,” Adams said. “But teams at Tri-Valley are dedicated and have disciplined athletes and diligent coaches.”
Awards were presented to athletes on each of the winter sports teams: alpine skiing, boys’ basketball, girls’ basketball, cheerleading, indoor track and field and wrestling.
