CHENANGO COUNTY - With the 2015 high school football season coming to a close it is now that time of the year to look back on the County’s teams and see how they fared.
Norwich - The Purple Tornado started their season a little rockey, droping their first three straight. Norwich picked up their first win in week four over long time rival Oneonta 28-6 and would win again in week six against Dryden 13-0 and would finish their season 2-7. After making the play-offs last season and finishing 6-4, Norwich had high hopes for the 2015 season.
Ultimately this was a rebuilding year for the Tornado as they look forward to and prepare for next season.
