Milan has won back-to-back league title for the first time since the 1975-76 season, and over the span of two season have won 37 of their last 42 games.
“It was a night where we raised a lot of money for a girl from Jefferson who has leukemia, and it was just a great night for high school basketball,” Milan coach Josh Tropea said. “The kids wanted to win back-to-back league championships, but to do it undefeated makes it really special for this group of kids. It was a great night to celebrate our seniors and the contributions that have made to this program.”
