"The 25th anniversary is always a special number in any significant event in life. Whether it is a birthday, wedding anniversary, or in the case of the Seton-LaSalle boys basketball team -- a WPIAL championship.
It was 1989 when the Rebels last won the WPIAL championship trophy so it was only fitting that they would do something special in 2014, 25 years later. The drought ended last Saturday when the Rebels hoisted the trophy once again after winning the WPIAL Class AA title against Greensburg Central Catholic, 52-51.
"It feels fantastic," third-year coach Mark Walsh said. "We are so excited to make it through the four games with the opponents we had. We are extremely excited to be WPIAL champions."
Walsh went on to add that this championship has a little more meaning to it."
