Mayor Ray O'Connell has proclaimed Wednesday, April 7, 2021 Allentown Central Catholic Boys Basketball Team Appreciation Day in the city.
O'Connell presented the proclamation at a student assembly this morning at the school's Rockne Hall. It was the first day for the students in the school building following the Vikings 41-40 victory over Hickory last month at the Giant Center in Hershey to capture the PIAA Class AAAA state championship.
It was the first boys state basketball championship for a Lehigh Valley school since the Vikings won the AAA crown in 1986.
The Vikings finished the season with a 20-4 won/loss record under Head Coach Dennis Csensits.
