They were greeted by a large crowd of fans and got to show off their medals and New York State Championship Trophy when they arrived back. 

"It's unreal," says senior guard Zach Stenglien, "It's such a surreal feeling, seeing all these people out here, lining the street and at our school. It's great. It's great to be here, and we're really proud of what we've done." 

"You dream about days like today," says the team's head coach Chris Cardon.

"A lot of hard work, a lot of people here in the community support this team. It's not just the coaches or the players, it's the whole community. I've heard from so many people, and just having all of these people turn out on a Sunday afternoon, it's just very touching. It's very touching."
