GLENS FALLS -- Tournament MVP Evan St. Claire scored 28 points as Whitehall captured a long-awaited Class D title on Saturday, beating St. Johnsville 71-60 in the Section II Boys Basketball Tournament at Cool Insuring Arena.
Dawson Procella scored 19 points and Daniel St. Clair added 17 for the Railroaders, who hadn't won a sectional title since 1971. St. Claire pulled down 13 rebounds. Procella was named to the all-tournament team.
Whitehall was down by a point at halftime, but outscored St. Johnsville 40-28 in the second half.
