The Top Spot:
The Harrison Heels boys basketball team won the Tri-County 6th grade boys basketball championship last Sunday at the College of New Rochelle.
After earning the number one seed in the A division, the Heels entered the AA playoff bracket as the number six seed. The team battled four of the top AA teams in Westchester over the week, inching closer each time to the championship game.
On March 11 they defeated a strong AA New Rochelle team 42-39 to take home the league championship. Speed, toughness and a never say die attitude were key to the teams success all year. The boys finished their season with an impressive 17-1 record.
The team also had a strong following over the last several games as they made their march. Friends, family, town residents and classmates attended each game cheering the team on to victory.
Congratulations to the boys on a great season!
