With a 71-61 victory over Middle Early College, the Hawkeyes capture the program's first New York State Class C Championship.

Tournament MVP Jack Lambert followed his record-setting 53 point performance in the semis with 24 against the Kats and talked about what being a state champion means to him.

“It’s an incredible feeling. I’ve literally dreamed of this forever,” said Lambert. “This is just so amazing. Just to bring it back to the community, to our team. Just to do this for all of the guys that played before us.”
