Having already clinched at least a tie for a school record fourth straight Niagara-Orleans League championship, Medina takes aim at claiming outright possession of the crown as the Mustangs host Akron on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

Medina is currently 10-0 in N-O competition (15-3 overall) and two games ahead of runner-up Wilson (8-2) with two games remaining. The Mustangs will close out the N-O campaign on Thursday at Wilson which visits Roy-Hart on Tuesday.

During this current title run, Medina captured the N-O crown outright during both the 2015-16  and 2016-17 seasons and shared the crown with Newfane last year at 10-2.

Lyndonville, which has already locked up the Genesee Region League Division 2 title, will host Kendall at 7 p.m. Monday to close out the league campaign. The Tigers are 11-2 in the league and 16-2 overall. Kendall, which is 5-7 in the league and 8-10 overall, has won five of its last eight games after a slow 3-7 start to the season.
