1988 Boys Basketball Team
The top boys basketball team in the history of the Parma City School District, the 1987-88 team made the district's only appearance in the Final Four. The team earned a regional championship over St. Joseph and was also the district, sectional and Lake Erie League champion. The team started off 5-3 on the season, before winning 16 games in a row to finish at 21-4. The team would spark a decade long run of excellence as four other boys basketball teams reached the regionals.
