Congratulations to the Poughkeepsie Pioneers!
“It is with great pride I congratulate the Poughkeepsie High School Boys Basketball Team on winning the Class A New York State Championship over the weekend. It is the first time that Poughkeepsie has captured a State title since 1995; and, it is the first time that any Dutchess County basketball team has won a State title since 1999.
Our boys are not only winners on the court, but they also learned an important life lesson as they now enjoy the rewards of their many months of hard work, dedication, and resilience.
It is my hope that the entire City of Poughkeepsie will join me in congratulating our new State Champs. In the near future, the team will be invited to join me at the Mayor’s Office, and we will plan a parade to properly celebrate our champions.”
-Mayor Rob Rolison
