HOWELL-Howell Township mayor William Gotto and the township council recognized the Howell Hawks U11 travel basketball team for their 2015-16 Mid-Monmouth County Championship.
“It’s always a pleasure for us to reward and recognize people who have amazing accomplishments in the township especially when we get young boys and girls to go out and compete and represent Howell in a fantastic and positive way,” Gotto said. “We recognize them for their hard work and team spirit and their positive influence they’ve had on the township.”
Coach Mike Greene thanked Gotto and the council.
“We’ve been here three years in a row, two years losing by a basket, this year by winning a point,” Greene said. “These kids are so inspirational to me for what they do every day. I’m very proud of them.”
The girls finished their season with a 15-1 record.
“These kids are simply the best,” Greene added. “They really are.”
