When the team won the Regional and State Title, upon their return, the town and community gave them a “Lights and Sirens” parade led by the Bainbridge Fire Department and the New York State Police with many people greeting the team at the soccer field parking lot. Our school also held a pep rally on Friday, January 4th to celebrate the team’s remarkable accomplishments and to unveil another State Championship Banner and their second State Championship plaque that was added to the podium built last year. The banners now hang side by side in our main gym. There is an additional banner with pictures of last year and this year’s teams on the side wall of the main gym. The plaques will continue to be displayed inside the main entrance to the school. Also, the towns of Guilford and Bainbridge have put up very nice signs recognizing our team’s two state titles that can be seen as people enter Guilford and Bainbridge. We are extremely proud of our State Championship Team, Players and Coaches! We also thank our parents, relatives, friends, communities and media who have shown tremendous support of the team throughout their journey to repeat as State Champions!
