  • The 2017 high school state basketball championships have concluded and Section III teams achieved at a particularly high level.

  • The section's resident powerhouse programs brought home two more state titles: Westhill boys in Class B and the Jamesville-DeWitt girls in Class A.

    It was the third state championship in four years for Westhill.

    It was the second consecutive state championship for Jamesville-DeWitt, which has played in four straight title games.

    Only Section IV with three state champions (Moravia boys, Seton Catholic and Watkins Glen girls) won more titles than Section III. The Buffalo and Capital districts had no champions. Rochester and Long Island had one each. There are 11 sections that compete for New York championships.

    Said Section III executive director John Rathbun: "I’m truly thrilled with all of our student athletes who competed in regional and state championship events, the way that they represented their schools, communities and the Section is something that we should all be extremely proud of. I personally witnessed games in Troy and Binghamton this past weekend and I was gratified knowing that other sections use our teams as a measuring point of success.
