Knights of Columbus Basketball League Week Celebrations Day 4

Thursday November 6 was celebration night in the Little Gals Division. The evening was once again sponsored by Bridget Walker – Payne’s State Farm Insurance, with Putt and Blast supplying vouchers to the Player of the Week winners to go along with the Happy Meal vouchers donated all season to the Little Gals and Little Guys Player of the Week by Mary O’Neill and McDonalds. Tata’s Pizza came through with pizza for the “Pete’s Best Seat In The House” winners and we want to thank all of those businesses for their support of our 60th Anniversary Celebrations.
The evening was kicked off with a tribute to former player and current Little Gals coach, Mary Jane Besselink – Bravakis (Isabelle’s mom). Mary Jane is a proud graduate of our program who went on to play at Regiopolis – Notre Dame and the University of Hartford. She is the seventh leading scorer all time at the school and is second in career rebounds, and is in the top ten in a number of statistical categories at the university. Mary Jane is also in the University of Hartford Hall of Fame and she captained the team in her Junior and Senior seasons.  We are fortunate to have Mary Jane continue to be willing to come back to the league to coach and give the current players the chance to learn from a great player and an even greater person. Mary Jane also tossed the ball to start the first game and took over from Charlie Potter as the best jump ball toss of the week.
The next celebration events will be on Saturday with the Alumni two -ball tournament from 1-4 pm at St. Pat’s and our Celebration evening at the Grizzly Grill from 6 -10 pm Saturday night. There is no charge for the Two-Ball Tournament, but there is a $10 fee for the evening celebration to help support the league.
