Danvers Cagers No. 1 in Globe North Poll — Finally

The Boston Globe North basketball writer, Pat Bradley, finally came to his senses in today’s editions. He has the newly-crowned repeat Division 3 state champion Danvers High Falcons ranked first in his Top Ten, and he made the choice before the Falcons thrashed Smith Academy yesterday in the D-3 state title game, 66-50. Guess it’s never too late. Congrats, Pat.

This first-ever recognition for the Falcons comes after they were the No. 1-ranked team in The Globe’s overall boys’ basketball rankings at the end of the regular season, unheard of for a D-3 team to receive such accolades.

And the celebration has just started for the Falcons, who got a police/fire engine escort through Danvers Square after they arrived back on the home front early last evening, followed by a smashing team party at the home of Bill McKenna, proud pop of the team’s top scorer all year and 10-point producer Saturday, Nick McKenna.
