SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY—If you’re patient on a clear night you might just see a shooting star up in the heavens. But in the universe of local high school athletics, stars aplenty can be seen in broad daylight this time of year. This past week at the Donna Deppa Meet of Champions, it was the Sullivan County galaxy on display. Sullivan County Meet of Champions was renamed for the late Donna Deppa, a Sullivan West parent extraordinaire who exemplified unflagging support for her children and the teams they competed for. Deppa passed away in 2011, but her love for kids in motion and the coaches that mentor them lives on.
