The Erie Times News sports department is accepting nominations for its fifth annual 18 Under 18 list. Scheduled for publication in the Dec. 30 edition of Varsity, the section will honor 18 of District 10′s best student-athletes.
Last year, 25 nominations submitted by parents, relatives and coaches. The top 18 were chosen by the Times News sports department based on their submitted academic and athletic achievements.
