BOYS “GLORY-YEARS” 1988-1993

1991 WPIAL CHAMPIONSHIP MEDALS CEREMONY

The “Glory Years” began when Mark Jula was hired as Butler’s coach in 1987. Coach Jula then took Butler basketball on a 6 year ride of excitement and excellence and ending in 1993 with frustration and discontent. From 1988 thru 1993 Butler boys basketball fans were blessed with a run that probably will never be duplicated.

During that period Butler boys accumulated 130 wins(82%), four(4) consecutive section III championships, Butler’s only WPIAL basketball championship, one(1) WPIAL Runnerup, one(1) WPIAL semi-final appearances, three(3) WPIAL quarter-final appearances, one(1) PIAA semi-final appearance and two(2) PIAA quarter-final appearances. What amazing achievments and what an amazing period.
