Mount Vernon’s state championship team will be honored by both the city and Westchester County this week.
The Knights will be celebrated by the Westchester County legislature at 10 Wednesday morning followed by the Mount Vernon Board of Ed at 7 p.m.
They will then be feted with a parade through the city on Thursday. It is tentatively scheduled for 10 a.m. and will begin at Mount Vernon High School. The caravan will stop at every elementary, middle and high school in the district.
Mount Vernon was its second straight state title this season when it beat Aquinas on March 18 at the Glens Falls Civic Center. The win extended the program’s state record to 10 championships.
