The millenial generation, of which today’s college students are members, get pigeonholed as being entitled and narcissistic. This story is a moving reminder that such generalizations are not always useful. We thank these young men for what they did.
To the 25th Ross Cordell Rotary Tournament, held Saturday at Oneonta High School.
The annual wrestling tournament was dedicated to founder and longtime director Tom Marks on Friday night. Marks was presented with an award and a banner was raised in his honor.
OHS coach John Nealis called it “a longtime overdue honor.” According to a media release, the event began as “a brainstorming idea around a table” led by Cordell, a former Oneonta Rotarian. Since then, the release said, it has become one of the oldest and most successful wrestling tournaments in the state.
The tournament continues to be led by the Oneonta Rotary Club. We are thankful for their continued support, as well as to Marks and the many other people who have made it such a success.
