Whitesboro, who’s only league loss, came to Notre Dame earlier in the season, will soon have a chance for revenge. The Warriors finish up the regular season with three road games, at Oneida on February 3, at Notre Dame on February 6 and at Proctor on February 10.

Not only are the Warriors shooting for a league title, senior T.J. Borza is chasing his 1,000th career point. He could get to 1,000 when the Warriors play Oneida on February 3.
