BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The South Park Sparks celebrate a major win this Monday. South Park is the first Buffalo public school to win a state championship.
The team beat Our Lady of Lourdes from Poughkeepsie 49 to 46 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse on Friday.

Head Coach Tim Delaney said, “I think it’s finally setting in for our players and our student body just how special the last month has been.”
Quarterback Tyree Brown said, “We worked really hard this season, through a couple of ups and downs, but I really think we deserved it.”
