ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – A Tioga standout wrestler continues to shine.
Donovan Smith is this week’s 18 Sports Athlete of The Week sponsored by Simmons-Rockwell Nissan. Smith won the Section IV Division II title last weekend, his first as just a freshman for the Tigers. Donovan, along with five more Tioga wrestlers, tied the school record for the most-ever to compete at states for the school at six.
Smith, who transferred from Elmira this past season, has racked up a (38-2) overall record at 120-pounds. Donovan will face teammate, Mason Welch, in the first round of states in Albany on Friday. Welch drew a wildcard after falling to Smith in the Section IV finals 13-1.
