LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION congratulating Cornell University student-athlete
Kyle Dake upon becoming the first collegiate wrestler to win four NCAA
Division I titles in four different weight classes

WHEREAS, Excellence and success in competitive sports can be achieved
only through strenuous practice, team play and team spirit, nurtured by
dedicated coaching and strategic planning; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and pay
tribute to those young people within the State of New York who, by
achieving outstanding success in athletic competition, have inspired and
brought pride to their school and community; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to congratu-
late Cornell University student-athlete Kyle Dake upon becoming the
first collegiate wrestler to win four NCAA Division I titles in four
different weight classes; and
WHEREAS, Cornell University senior Kyle Dake defeated David Taylor of
Penn State, 5-4, in their 165-pound title showdown, making him the first
four-time NCAA champion to capture wrestling crowns in four different
weight categories; he captured the win on the single point he earned
with an advantage of more than a minute in riding time in the final
period; and
WHEREAS, In addition, Kyle Dake became just the third four-time cham-
pion in Division I wrestling; he won his first three NCAA titles at 141,
149 and 157 pounds, and this season, he moved up to 165; and
WHEREAS, Kyle Dake, the son of Doug and Jodi Dake, is a product of
Lansing, New York; and
WHEREAS, Kyle Dake's undefeated senior year record of 37-0 is
outstanding; he was loyally and enthusiastically supported by family,
fans, friends and the community at large; and
WHEREAS, Sports competition instills the values of teamwork, pride and
accomplishment, and Kyle Dake has clearly made a contribution to the
spirit of excellence which is a tradition of his school; now, therefore,
be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
congratulate Cornell University student-athlete Kyle Dake upon becoming
the first collegiate wrestler to win four NCAA Division I titles in four
different weight classes; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Kyle Dake.
