This banquet was memorable for the 2018-2019 New Castle Red Hurricane basketball team as they won their 3rd consecutive class 4A WPIAL Title at the Peterson Event Center.  The banquet began with our 9th-grade coach Larry Kelly, who welcomed everybody tonight and was talking about the unforgettable season. Before we started eating, 7th-grade coach Brian Rice gave us an invocation. As we were enjoying the festivities, Richard Beshero gave the players and managers a Commendation from Mayor Anthony Mastrangelo for winning the 4A title.
