PENN YAN — Area high schools continue to come up with clever ways to make sure their student-athletes receive recognition for their hard-fought fall and winter seasons.

The Penn Yan Athletic Department celebrated all the school’s athletes who received awards during our 54th annual sports awards last week during an online video presentation. On Tuesday, Penn Yan hosted a drive-thru awards distribution during which athletes were invited to pick up their awards and stop for a quick photo op with their coach.

Twin sisters Molly and Claire Pullen received the Outstanding Athletic Achievement Award. The duo won the Section V Class B2 doubles championship last fall.
