Youth Sports Spotlight: Recipients

July
Palmyra Youth Wrestling - Despite only being 3 seasons old, the PYWC is home to over 48 athletes ages five to fourteen & seven volunteer coaches. For a community with less than 3,600 residence, it’s surprising to find out that it’s one of the largest youth wrestling clubs in the area.
August
Christian Miles Go Karts - Christian is a 12 year old from Paloma, goes to Central Jr High, he has straight A’s who plays basketball and races go karts all over USA.
september2
Carthage Middle School Cross Country team - I do think one of the things that sets us apart is the commitment on the part of the families and the athletes themselves to keep the program going. Parents are responsible for providing 100% of the transportation to/from meets, 100% of the IESA and meet fees and 100% flexibility to help out in whatever way they may be needed to ensure that the season goes well.
October
Camp Point Central Junior High Football - This youth program not only introduces football to 6th, 7th and 8th graders, it also helps teach them life skills like discipline, respect, dedication and patience
November
Central Lee Middle School Football - they had a winning season of 4-2 and we hadn’t had a winning season in 6 years. The boys played their hearts out which they believe helped the high school varsity team push and end the season with two very positive wins.
