New Hartford seniors celebrate a state title years in the making


UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The 2008-2009 Spartans team did not just appear out of nowhere. The core group of upperclassmen has been playing together since elementary school.

Senior Spencer Davidson said, "This is unreal, it's such a special group. I can't say enough about the guys on this team we all just enjoy each other so much, we just feed off each others talents so well. It's just unreal; I can't say enough about this group."

Senior Jake Silberlicht said, "If I could pick 30 of my best friends, the top 24 is in this locker room. It's just unreal that it could happen with such a great group of guys. It's the day of our lives."

Captain Patrick Ryan said, "I moved here last year from California. I'm the new guy, they picked me as a captain, it's a great honor and I love these guys like brothers"

Senior Tom Fiorentio said, I'm really happy but it's also bittersweet because its our last time playing together, it's definitely great to go out this way and end it."
