The fifth grade Jericho travel basketball team recently defeated Syosset to win the Island Garden Super League championship.

Using a swarming defense and sharp execution on the offensive end, Jericho went on a 17-1 run to start the second half. The boys from Syosset fought hard until the end, with Jericho ultimately prevailing by the score of 43-18.
Victorious coach Warren Wagner summed it up after the game: “It was a wonderful end to a great season.”
