When two members of the Rowe family of Ripley were recently honored for milestones in their athletic careers, the event became a celebration for the extended family. At left, Superintendent Ben Spitzer presents a plaque marking 150 varsity wrestling victories to senior Bryce Rowe. Next, Principal Josh Liddell, who supervises athletics programs at Chautauqua Lake, presents a plaque to wrestling coach Brad Rowe in honor of his 100 dual meet victories. Also attending the ceremony were young Finn and Darwin Rowe, Ken Rowe, Brendan Rowe and Dom Rammelt. Brad, who has been varsity wrestling head coach at Chautauqua Lake since 2013, held the same position at Ripley Central School from 2008 to 2013. Bryce has been a varsity wrestler since 2012, first at Ripley and now at Chautauqua Lake. The accolades mark the family’s long-time commitment to excellence in wrestling.
