There was chest-bumping, screaming, yelling and the players even carried coach Cally Prasinos on their shoulders across the hardwood."We worked real hard for this," said junior Patrick Parker, who scored 16 points. "This is an important game for us. This is a matter of proving to the city who we are."Newtown came into the game undefeated in Queens A, having defeated John Adams, a team Hillcrest is jockeying with at the top of Queens A West. The Spartans beat the Hawks earlier this year, though. So, beating the team that beat Adams meant a lot. And beating Newtown by 18 points didn't quell their excitement either."The way we beat them," Parker said, "was why we were so hyped."
