WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize our young
individuals,  who  strive  for  athletic and academic excellence through
rigorous training and mental and physical discipline; and
  WHEREAS, Athletic training and  competition  enhances  the  moral  and

standing  traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to congratu-
late Sydney O'Hara upon the occasion of being  named  the  Gatorade  New

  WHEREAS,  The  daughter  of  Michelle O'Hara, Sydney O'Hara, a Cicero-

a first-team, all-state selection;  Gatorade  documented  that  she  has

versatility  on  the softball field, and for her outstanding leadership,
sportsmanship, athletic excellence, academic achievement, and  exemplary
