The 2017-2018 high school sports season is over.

Really, though, it's just the beginning for so many gifted student-athletes in Central New York.

The Section III Scholar-Athlete Dinner took place Monday night at the SRC Arena on the Campus of Onondaga Community College.

In all, exemplary scholar-athletes from more than 80 of the 105 member schools in Section III took part in the ceremony with award plaques and scholarships earned.

10 athletes earned scholarships from Coca-Cola, ranging from $150-500. While four standouts earned the "Coach D" Award in honor of former Chittenango Athletic Director Frank DiChristina.
