Susquehanna Valley on its first STAC title since 1972:
"Everyone is excited," said Susquehanna Valley senior guard Trinasia Kennedy. "We came in and we're like since 1972? We gotta make history right here. We already did 20-0 and we're doing awesome, but we wanted this for ourselves, for Freije and for our school. That's exactly what we came here to do and we finished business."
"First in 40-some years for our school," said Susquehanna Valley head coach Chad Freije. "We had a really good turnout from our fans, which is always special. Just another thing on our road to our accomplishments."
