State Senator Tom O’Mara (R,C,I-Big Flats) and Assemblyman Phil Palmesano (R,C,I-Corning) will host the Corning-Painted Post Boys Varsity Cross Country state champions and representatives of the state champion Competition Band at the State Capitol on Monday, March 26, where they will be honored by the Senate and Assembly.
The 2017 Cross Country team captured its second-straight New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) Class A state championship last November.
Last October, the Competition Band won the 2017 Large School Division 3 New York State Field Band Conference Championship.
Monday’s visit will include recognition of the team’s achievement on the floor of the Senate and Assembly.
Cross Country Coach Ray Lawson and Band Director Joe Stork will accompany the students to Albany
