Weedsport graduate Mike Chirco was one of 23 Western New England University athletes inducted into the Chi Alpha Sigma National College Honor Society Wednesday.

The society recognizes students that receive a varsity letter and display leadership while maintaining a 3.4 or higher grade point average through their junior or senior year. Candidates also need an endorsement from their head coach to be of good moral character.

Chirco, a junior linebacker who is majoring in sport management, led the Golden Bears with 85 total tackles and was a three-time conference defensive player of the week last fall.
