Jordan McLaughlin is used to living a disciplined, regimented lifestyle. It makes sense that a career in the military awaits the Section VI wrestling champion who is heading to the United States Naval Academy once he graduates from Olean High School. It also makes sense that those characteristics played a vital role in McLaughlin’s selection as the 2017 recipient of the…

St. Joe's defeated St. Francis by one-hundredth of a sec…
