Section 9 D2 Championships

Youth Prevails at the Small School Tournament; Ross Family Makes Section 9 History

The Ross family from Onteora had quite a successful day at the office!  For the first time in Section 9 history, four brothers have been crowned Section 9 champions in the same tournament.  Pat (106), Nick (113), Nate (126), and Dillon (152) all won titles on a day that saw nine underclassmen crowned champion! Pat and Nick are 8th grade twins. Nate is a freshman and Dillon is a junior…yes, that means they are all coming back next year!  Onteora had a 5th champion as Zach Chartrand took home the title at 145 – he’s only a junior and is also coming back next year! Chartrand was voted MOW of the tournament.

Red Hook’s depth proved to be too much as they came away with the team title followed by Onteora.  Eldred/Liberty/Sullivan West, New Paltz, and Rondout Valley rounded out the top 5 teams.  Take a look at the finals results and click on the link below for complete brackets.
