This week Ama Boham a Sophomore from Ichabod Crane (YES! The school with all the snow days) is our Cat's Eye Pest Control Local Athlete of the Week.

Here's her nomination:

Ama won 1st place is the Div 2 100m hurdles at the NYSPHSAA Track & Field Championships last Saturday at Union Endicott. Remarkable achievement, especially considering she tore her ACL playing soccer in the fall. Ama is also a High Honor Roll student.
