Friends of Basketball awards are announced By Bethany Parvin The Warriors and Warriorettes have selected this year's Friends of Basketball.
The Warriorettes chose Jeanie Stockland and Ally Eckert as their Friends of Basketball. They were the Warriorettes' bookkeepers for many years. When the Warriorettes were in huddles they were the loudest people you could hear. They were always cheering, no matter win or lose.
The Warriors chose Kristi Gillette and Stephanie Light. These are elementary teachers who were at every ball game that the Warriors played; they even traveled to watch the boys play in the Hamlin Classic.
Each team, boys and girls, give the Friend of Basketball Award to deserving individuals who supports the team the entire year. Their presence at the games, their positive contribution to the program, and their loud cheers are all factors in the decision.
Congratulations to this year's honorees and thank you for the support.
