Throughout the years there have been many good senior C.O.S.S.A teams but unlike no other, this team rated above. These great athletes were the C.O.S.S.A champions of 1946. The boys and their coach Mr. Rose worked extremely hard at practices and exhibition
games in order to advance in the competition.
In a game against Welland the boys set a record in the C.O.S.S.A competition by scoring an outstanding 59 points, which is better than a point a minute. They eventually advanced to the semi finals for the Niagara District honors against Merritton and won. They went on
to play against Fort Erie and the boys beat Fort Erie taking a 57-42 lead on their own floor in the two game total point series. In the return game they lost by a single point. That was the only loss the athletes had that season while on their way to the championship. The boys played a great season and all their hard work and dedication paid off.
This was a well balanced, well coached, hardworking and dedicated team. The city of Niagara Falls and their schools were very proud of this teams accomplishments and have well earned and well deserved a place in the Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame.
