Hamburg senior Ellie DeLucia knows that to take flight, she has to put her best foot forward.

June 6, 2019 - It was a big day for the News 4 sports department.
Each month during the school year, we introduce you to a male and female scholar-athlete.
On Wednesday, we had a chance to congratulate all of them, and name the winners of the $1,500 Scholar-Athlete of the Year scholarships.
The female winner was Jenna Crean, from Orchard Park High School.
CSP's John Swabik became a state champion for the second time this year, as did his Clymer/Sherman/Panama teammate Camron Bamore. Several of Western New York’s best also earned spots on the awards podium, including Orchard Park senior Jenna Crean in her scholastic swan song.
