Starpoint Athletic Teams Continue to Excel

Starpoint FootballOne of the great things about life in Western New York is people’s love for sports at all levels. Of course there are the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres to cheer for, but there are also plenty of local school teams, like Starpoint, who are worthy of admiration.

Take, for instance, the Starpoint hockey team. They recently managed to beat the Depew Wildcats 4-1 in order to take the state title. It was Starpoint’s first state title in 18 years and the biggest game in the school’s history. Of course the team had to overcome challenges along the way to winning the title, with good competition from larger schools like Orchard Park. Jordan Meisenburg, Josh Krupczyk and Patrick Miklinski scored plenty of goals to help make the Starpoint hockey team finish strong this past season.

Besides hockey, the Starpoint football team also had a banner year. Sophomore Justin Mott ran 62 yards for a touchdown in the big game against the McKinley Macks. Starpoint won 20-13 in that Section VI Class A semifinal game. And guess what? That put the team at 9-0 for the season. Not bad, huh? Starpoint’s football team advanced to the Class A championship game. Held at New Era Field, the home of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, this was/is a big deal for Starpoint. Good luck, boys!
