The Aviators big regular season win was over Butler to give Heights the Meadowlands regular season crown.  Butler, when Hasbrouck Heights was shipped to Section 2, benefited by moving to top seed in North 1. The Aviators then knocked off Park Ridge (North 1, Group 1 two seed), and Rutherford (North 2, Group 2, 1 seed) in the NJIC Finals to capture their second NJIC crown in three years.

Shipped to North 2, Group 1 and placed behind Shabazz, the Aviators opened up with a 42-0 win over previously unbeaten New Providence.
