In the Championship Game against first-place Conference AA-1 Syosset High School, the team’s defense shined as they jumped out to 30-12 halftime lead before winning by the score of 48-34. Nick Spinoso was named MVP of the Holiday Classic and Sean Lachman was named to the All-Tournament Team. A great team effort was on display by Sean Boll at the point guard position, Joe Braskey and Jake Cosgrove as the off guards and Dan Wilson and Sean Wilcox as power forwards.
The team’s record now stands at 6 wins against 2 losses as they head into a tough schedule in CHSAA league play. The team would like to thank all the fans and families who came out to support their team as the players look forward to what should be an exciting season.
