The road to the state championships goes through the County Center. That is why I congratulated all three Section 1 teams from Westchester for their state title wins at a ceremony there earlier this week.
Winning a state championship is a mark of great success for these players. But it is also a testament to our schools, talented coaches and dedicated parents. Westchester County is proud of them and the team effort that went into making their seasons so remarkable.
About our champs:
For the third year in a row, the Irvington Lady Bulldogs, led by Coach Gina Maher, took the state championship. They beat South Jefferson 69-42 to win the Class B title.
The Mount Vernon Knights, led by Coach Bob Cimino, took the Class AA championship for the second straight year by edging out the Rochester Acquinas 61-57.
Bringing the title home for the first time since 1981, the Tuckahoe Tigers, led by Coach Al Visconti, defeated Buffalo Middle College 77-66. The Tigers win capped off a 25-0 undefeated season.
