“Congratulations to all the athletes who started playing and working hard way back in March,” said Mike Lunney, assistant director of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League. “To get to this point is a really special thing. Your hard work and dedication has really paid off.”

Coaches, players and school officials representing each team were treated to breakfast at Rhode Island College before a news conference earlier today.
