His teams played twice for the state championship (1978 and 1981) and won the title in 1978. In 1981 his team was the #1 ranked Class S Team for most of the year and finished the season at 22 and 4 losing to Bacon Academy in the state championship game at Central CT State University.

During his over 20 years of coaching high school basketball, coach Mudano has had the opportunity to attend numerous coaching clinics both in Connecticut and all over the Northeast and knows what it takes to offer today's coaches a valuable and informative clinic.
