On a cold Dec. 8 Sunday morning, the village and the town of Monroe celebrated the Crusaders Girls Varsity Soccer State Championship season.

At 11 a.m. the Crusaders gathered in the parking lot on the Mill Pond Parkway where they boarded two open air carts that were pulled by tractors for their parade down Lake Street to Smith's Clove Park.

The team was escorted through town by fire trucks from Monroe, Harriman and Woodbury, police cars from the state, Monroe, Blooming Grove and Woodbury and EMS crews from Woodbury and Monroe.

The championship parade was organized by Athletic Director Lori Hock, Town Supervisor Tony Cardone, Village Mayor Neil Dwyer, Monroe PD Sergeant Douglas Krauss, school board member Staci McCleary and Tom Sullivan of the Monroe Joint Fire District.

After the victory parade wound it’s way through town and and found its way to Smith's Clove Park the Crusaders got back on their bus and were treated to pizza party lunch by Jay’s Deli of Highland Mills.

The parade was the perfect way for the community to celebrate the Crusaders' back-to-back Girls AA Division State Championship season.
