“I am so proud of this team for bringing the ECIC IV championship home,” Legislator Hardwick said. “Throughout the season, these players demonstrated a brotherhood of athletic ability and good sportsmanship that is second to none. I commend the faculty, staff, coaches, families, and of course the team players, for an outstanding year and congratulate them on their success.”


The Warriors captured the ECIC IV Conference title by defeating rival Lackawanna 33-32 to clinch its first league championship since 1958.  A 58-40 victory over Eden secured sole possession of the ECIC IV crown for the team.
