York girls win Oswego East tournament

OSWEGO – The York girls basketball team hadn't lived up to expectations so far this season, but maybe they've turned the corner.

The Dukes won the Oswego East Holiday Classic Tournament by defeating Sycamore 40-35 in the final on Saturday. Sarah Milkowski and Jessica Bianchi claimed all-tournament honors.

York (7-8) had not won consecutive games entering the tournament, but will begin 2014 with a four-game winning streak in hand. The Dukes beat Harlem (49-36), the host Wolves (46-40) and Metea Valley (42-38) to advance to the final.
