ALBANY — The Stillwater varsity boys basketball team earned their second state championship in school history when they defeated Marcellus 59-50 in March at the Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls. Prior to capturing the Class B title, the team won the Wasaren League with a 16-0 record and finished the season with a nearly flawless overall record of 27-1.

To commemorate the team’s success, State Senator Jim Tedisco and Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner honored the team in Albany, where a resolution was passed on the Senate floor.

The Stillwater Warriors were also recognized for their academic achievements as a New York State Public High School Athletic Association Scholar-Athlete Team, earning an overall team grade point average above 90 percent.

“The Stillwater Boys Basketball Team had an incredible championship season that will be remembered for a long time,” Senator Tedisco said in a statement. “I’m proud of this team and [proud] to welcome and honor them on the Floor of the New York State Senate.”
