Section 9, on the rise, sends five teams to state semis for first time in history

The days of Section 9 serving collectively as a punching bag in the state playoffs are long gone. Want proof? Look at the results over the past decade.

Even more impressive is the fact that Section 9’s results keep getting better. Section 9 made history last season by sending four teams to the semifinals of the state playoffs – Monroe-Woodbury (Class AA), Cornwall (A), Marlboro (B) and Chester (D). It marked the first time in the 21-year history of the state’s full playoff format that four Section 9 teams reached the final four.

This fall, Section 9 has stepped it up a notch: Five teams are alive! All five Section 9 teams are one win away for playing for a state championship.

Newburgh (AA), Cornwall (A), Marlboro (B), Millbrook (C) and Chester (D) will all be playing in the state semifinals next weekend. Local teams are 11-16 all-time in the semifinals of the state football playoffs. Monroe-Woodbury has five of the wins, reaching the Class AA state championship game every year from 2005-08 and last season.

The Crusaders won the state title in 2005. Only one other Section 9 team has ever won a state championship – Rondout Valley in 2000. Jim Malak, who coached that historic Rondout Valley team, is now an assistant with Marlboro.
