Syracuse, NY, May 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Price Chopper in cooperation with School Sports Media™, Inc. , a leader in sponsored school sports marketing, announced today that it has agreed to sponsor the Section III Boys & Girls Lacrosse finals in Syracuse, NY.
“We are excited to sponsor the Section 3 Finals, as lacrosse is so deeply rooted in our neighboring central New York communities. We look forward to following the teams as they enter the section championship season,” said Pam Cerrone, Manager of Community Relations.
According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, 55.5% of all students take part in high school sports. School sports and interscholastic activities provide an opportunity for children to participate in meaningful team experiences. Participation is often an indicator of drop-out rates and of success in college. A recent USA Today survey found that 95% of the Fortune 500 Companies CEO’s participated in extracurricular activities.
According to John Rathbun Executive Director of Section III “The fiscal realities of the budget cuts are affecting fundamental after school activities everywhere so sections across the state have to be more creative. We are thrilled with having Price Chopper as a partner with our 2012 Boys & Girls Lacrosse Championship. Their commitment will help make up some of the budget gaps we as a section face in keeping our championships in place.
