The Home of 11 New York State Championship Teams


New York State Section 4 Boys High School Basketball Champions History

In the table below, aside from showing each years Section 4 winner, there are colored dots representing how far each team went in the NYPHSAA Tournament. If you know how far any team went (for example: Did they make it to the semi's, the finals, or maybe only the quarterfinals, etc.) for any year, email and it'll be added to the table.

Thanks for any help. Also, any photos of Section 4 players, teams, etc. that you wouldn't mind having posted on this page, send them along.

* Elmira Notre Dame won the Class A State Championship in 1978. They finished 20-4 beating Roosevelt in the finals. END actually lost the Section 4 title to Sidney, but because of the point system used back then END represented Class A and Sidney went down to Class B.

** 1972 Class B Champion was Seton Catholic of Endicott, not the combined catholic schools as we now know.
