The fifth grade Jericho travel basketball team recently defeated Syosset to win the Island Garden Super League championship.
After finishing the season atop the league standings and splitting their two regular season games, expectations were high that these two teams would produce another exciting and well-played game. The boys from both teams did not disappoint as they traded baskets in an extremely close first half, with Jericho taking the lead 14-10 at halftime. 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.”
