Much like their rivals accomplished last season, the Friars, led by coaches Antoni Walters and Keith Eckert, will be hungry and determined to regain their spot atop the proverbial mountain, a position that the Huntington, NY based high school has not enjoyed winning back-to-back team titles in 2001 & 2002… Continue reading “CHSAA Preview: Friars Poised to Regain Crown For First Time Since 2002”
