Go Inside the Sports Beat with Northstar Christian Girls Basketball and Spencerport Wrestling

Welcome to this week’s breakdown of the High School Sports Beat, brought to you by Alfred State College.  Many thanks to Alfred State College for sponsoring the Sports Beat, and helping to bring weekly coverage of Section V High School Sports to broadcast on 13 WHAM.

Now, here’s your behind the scenes look at the production, from the producer and the shows many contributors. It’s Week 24 of the season, and sectional champions are being crowned in some winter sports…
