"Over the past handful of seasons, Fort Cherry has asserted itself as one of the best teams in the Class A Black Hills Conference. The Rangers have gone 43-25 since the start of the 2007 season, finishing among the top four teams in their conference in what will soon be five of the past six years.
In that time, though, something has eluded them -- a conference championship. In many of those seasons, it was perennial power Clairton that got in their way, just as it did to so many other teams for basically the past decade.
But with the Bears' historic win streak over with a retooled roster, the Rangers have a chance to capture what has escaped them for some time.
Through eight games, Fort Cherry is locked in a three-way tie atop the conference standings with Clairton and Monessen, putting it in a position to win its first conference championship -- or at least a share of one -- in more than a decade."
