Ending a 20 plus year drought, Albion earned a share of the Niagara-Orleans League boys basketball championship with Newfane.

The Purple Eagles and Panthers finished with identical 9-3 records.

The N-O title was the first for Albion since the Purple Eagles shared the crown with Starpoint during the 1998-99 season.

Deyonci Farley, Kevin Hillman, Liam Ward and Bailey Blanchard all earned spots on the N-O All-League squad for the Purple Eagles.
