To the Editor:
I attended the Bayonne Elementary School Basketball Championships on January 25. First, congratulations to all the teams, their players, and their coaches. The gym was packed and there was a true championship atmosphere in the air. The biggest winner of the night was the city of Bayonne, and her residents. The entire atmosphere was positive; spectators, players, parents, all acting appropriate and appreciative of the student athletes’ performances. The staff running the league did a wonderful job and excelled that evening. It was really refreshing and positive to see all the school personnel in attendance for one purpose: to support our students. It was a great evening of Bayonne pride and sportsmanship. This is the Bayonne that I know and to one and all, thank you for showing why Bayonne is still a great place to live and raise a family.
