GLENS FALLS — Since the state tournament opened a Class AA division in 2004, no Section 1 team has ever won a championship. North Rockland, one of the largest schools in the section, which is now Class AA, won state titles in 1996 and 2000, before the Class AA era.
Suffern will have the chance to make history at the Glens Falls Civic Center when it plays Penfield for the Class AA crown Sunday morning. The Mounties posted a 4-2 record in pool play on Saturday to advance. Suffern went 0-6 when it last appeared in the state semifinals three years ago. Penfield won it all that year.
