Coaches give approval to Sect III team's in Stop DWI Regionals

After taking down New York Mills and Fayetteville-Manlius in their respective Stop DWI Holiday Classic Regional Finals, Norwich head coach Tom Collier and M-E head coach Bill Ocker said that the inclusion of non-STAC teams was a good idea.
In the previous 12 years of Regional divisions in the Holiday Classic, all of the teams participating were from Section IV, and the majority were members of STAC. But for the 22nd annual tournament, the Regional brackets lived up to their names, including one Section III team in each division.
The move was made to allow local teams a chance to see some of the competition that they might face down the road in state playoffs.
