By Staff | Mar 3, 2016

RUTH FRY/The Luminary The Max Shnyder District IV Wrestling Scholarships were awarded Saturday night prior to the District IV wrestling tournament championships. The scholarships are based on academic performance, participitation and leadership in athletics, and interest in furthering education. Hughesville's Zach Fry was selected as this year's recipient of the $1,000 scholarship.
