( J.R.H. 62)

Offered by: Representatives Alfano of Calais and Osman of Plainfield.

Whereas, the Twinfield Union High School Trojans’ Boys’ Basketball Team, with nearly an entirely new squad, sought to repeat as Division IV champions, and

Whereas, the top-seeded Trojans bounced and shot the basketball through a thrilling season that resulted in another divisional final berth based on a very respectable 18-4 record, and

Whereas, they entered the final contest against their opponents, the third-seeded Rochester High School Rockets, prepared to encounter a worthy challenger, and

Whereas, these closely matched teams exchanged the lead until the Trojans pulled ahead in the fourth quarter as they propelled forward to a 62-55 victory, and

Whereas, the Trojans’ offensive attack was commanded by Jason Getz who garnered 21 points, including five three-point plays, and

Whereas, Gregg Gove contributed mightily with 19 points and teammate James Rogers scored 10 while Damion Craig tipped in 6 points for the cause, and

Whereas, Sam Rubin, Jeremy Cushing, Jose Dion, Travis Hodgkins, Chris Rathburn and Mike Bisson each played a vital role in the Trojans’ drive to retain the Division IV championship crown, and

Whereas, coach Denis Fowler has once again demonstrated his basketball savvy and leadership capabilities as he guided his largely rebuilt team to another divisional title, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That the General Assembly extends its congratulations to the Twinfield Union High School Trojans’ Boys’ Basketball Team, and be it further

Resolved: That the Secretary of State be directed to send a copy of this resolution to coach Denis Fowler at Twinfield Union High School.
