Section IV athletics gives out Character Counts Awards each year to 2 deserving Juniors and 2 deserving Seniors who depict great examples of great character on and off the field. Section IV believes at the heart of every leader must be positive character traits. As Michael Josephson states: “Our Character is both formed and reveled by how we deal with everyday challenges as well as extraordinary pressures and temptation, like a well-made tower, character is built stone by stone, decision by decision.” Congratulations to our 2 Juniors, Masie Robertson and Johnny VanScoyk and our 2 seniors Katrina Ricca and Jason Murphy. Each student/athlete received a certificate, T-Shirt, pin and bumper sticker depicting their accomplishments.

Congratulations to Carly Arnold and Otto Hohle who were selected as this year's Character Counts Award winners. They both spent the afternoon at a league luncheon in Lansing with other award winner from our competing IAC districts. Both are very deserving of this recognition.
Congratulations to our 2023 WG Senior, Sarah Stolpinski. Sarah is active in sports, this year she was on the Varsity Girls Swim Team, who claimed IAC Champs along with Section IV Class C Title, followed by the Ski Club in the winter and this spring finished out with Track & Field (this was her first season). Today, she signed her Celebratory College form to Alfred University where she will continue swimming at the collegiate sport level. Stolpinski, stated by her WG swimming coach Jason Westervelt, "always brought a level of humor and uplifted the team, and she doesn't even realize that she does it, she brings the calm when nerves get tense, and her personality stands out". Congratulations Sarah! Pictured: Parents Paul & Tina Stolpinski and sister Eliya Stolpinski who graduated from WG in 2020

The Clay Target Shooting Club had an optional shoot at Lansing on June 2nd. Lansing, Moravia, T-burg, & Newfield were also present. Team Storm had an excellent showing as Meredith & Elizabeth Raleigh placed 1st and 2nd in the novice group and Cordelia Thompson (not pictured) won the overall shoot.
Our boy’s baseball team played in its first ever state regional game at Mirabito Stadium in Binghamton after winning the Section Championship last week. It was not the result we were hoping for, as we lost to Little Falls 4-1. But our STORM community is very proud of the way our boys played this season. Congratulations on having a tremendous season! We look forward to next year.
