Student enrollment at Aquinas is around 500 and change. If you went solely by the numbers, the Little Irish football team would be playing in Class B. Good thing for the rest of New York they don’t.

Instead, two years ago Head Coach Chris Battaglia elected to move his team into AA -- the highest classification. Sunday night, AQ made it look easy winning the state championship against Monroe-Woodbury at the Carrier Dome 48-13.
