Class L State Championship Game!!!

This Sunday, the Hand girls take on Holy Cross in the Class L state championship game. Tip-off is  3:00 in the Mohegan Sun Arena. You can buy tickets at the door or in advance if your prefer (http://ciacsports.com/site/?p=3337). A $10 ticket gets you access to all three games that day with the first game tipping off at 12:30. The booster club would love to see everybody wear black, make posters (can be as big as 8'x11'!!!) for the players, and have everybody sit together across from the Hand bench. So, rally the troops and get on up to Mohegan Sun in support of our Tigers!

Also, on Monday there is another opportunity to see some great girls basketball at the CHSCA All-Star Game. The Class L-LL game, featuring Gabby Martin, is at 7:30 at North Haven HS. Admission is $6. 

Here is the Hand roster in case your player wants to make a poster or two.

Madison Madness!

Kids driving you nuts today? Have them do some research and fill out a bracket! The settings have been adjusted so that a family can fill in up to ten brackets now, so for those of you with multiple players it will be easy to enter one for each. 

 

Working from home and looking to procrastinate? There's no better way! Here are the links for our Madison Madness adult brackets ($20 per bracket, up to 10 brackets). 

.

Adults: http://madisonmadnessforadults.mayhem.cbssports.com/e/395adec8559956ee0d9144015d02e19626022b02d4e5a79f27e5c5d8813818b7f9bc31c13812a8e6?ttag=BPM17_cpy_invite_new

 

 

Brackets must be completed by noon on Thursday and don't forget to enter a final combined score as a tie breaker. Checks can be made out to the MYBA and mailed to Randy Howe at 231 Summer Hill Road Madison, CT 06443. You can also pay via Venmo (@dfrh3) or Paypal (fitzhowe@hotmail.com). Non-MYBA adults are also more than welcome to participate (spread the word!), but for the kids pool let's limit it to our players. Let me know if you have any questions and best of luck!

 

Regards,

Randy Howe

Thank Yous!!!

To the Entire MYBA Family,

 

Thank you all so much for your support last night at our 1st Annual Coaches v Coaches game to benefit the Madison Food Pantry. Through your efforts, this morning we were able to deliver 1,416 food items (weighing in at 1,401 pounds!), plus a cash donation of $450. Seeing you all lined up in the Polson lobby was downright inspiring and I think the kids saw just how much can be accomplished when people come together for a common cause. I’m especially happy that First Selectman Tom Banisch was able to reinforce this message for the kids. 

 

I would like to also thank all of the coaches that played in the game, or in a supporting role (refs, raffle ticket sellers, scoreboard, donation deliverers, etc, etc, etc!), last night. It was a good reminder of what great role models we have volunteering on behalf of our children. With an emphasis on not just community service but good sportsmanship, the 25 men and women that took the court were able to lead by example just as they have these past four months. I’m glad it was a close and entertaining game and loved the enthusiasm from the crowd!

 

And one final round of thank yous to Jay Canth and several of our local businesses for making the evening extra fun with fantastic donations. A big nod of appreciation to Egidio Assante Wealth Management, Coastal Pro Transport/Continental Auto Sales, Vigliotti Construction/JFA Management, Donahue’s, BatterUp, Lenny and Joe’s, Bradley and Wall, Ashley’s, Cristy’s, Zuse for the coaches’ t-shirts, and Brother Mike’s for taking good care of the coaches, post-game. 

 

I have added 80 photos to our Facebook page (http://bit.ly/2fZh2ds) and ask that all of you other photographers add yours, as well. I have also added almost 150 photos to the slideshow on our website (madisonbasketball.org), so check them out to see some familiar, smiling faces.

 

Thanks again for a great evening and best of luck as you wrap up your season! 

 

Regards,

Randy Howe

President, Madison Youth Basketball Association
