"Hampton High School proved it was the class of WPIAL Division II boys lacrosse in recent years.
The Talbots grabbed one last championship on its way out the door before it moves up to compete against "the big boys."
Hampton beat Greensburg Central Catholic, 16-7, last Friday at Chartiers Valley in a WPIAL title game that was its final one as a member of Division II. Winners of three of the past four Division II championships, the Talbots move up to Division I next season.
"We kind of realized that with winning D-II, because we graduate only four seniors -- two of whom were hurt the entire season -- we set this D-II title as the midway point for us because we'll be playing toward a much larger goal that will happen hopefully sometime next year," Hampton coach Greg Edleman said."
