VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND THE MIDLAND VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL BOYS VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM ON AN OUTSTANDING SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM ON WINNING THE 2015 CLASS AAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, the Midland Valley High School boys varsity basketball team completed an outstanding season by capturing the 2015 Class AAA State Championship title. The Mustangs defeated A.C. Flora Falcons 62-56 at the Colonial Life Arena on March 7, 2015; and
Whereas, the Mustangs' victory over A.C. Flora was an impressive end to their 26-4 record this season. The game was Midland Valley's first appearance in a state final in program history; and
Whereas, Midland Valley took control of the game early with fifteen unanswered points against the Falcons, which helped them maintain a 29-21 lead at the end of the half. Two times in the second half, A.C. Flora trimmed the deficit to four points, but the Mustangs responded both times, refusing to let their advantage fall below four; and
Whereas, Kameron Brown led the Mustangs in scoring with sixteen points and four rebounds. Daniel Carr added thirteen points for Midland Valley. The Mustangs overcame height and rebound disadvantages for their win; and
Whereas, Midland Valley fall to A.C. Flora in a holiday tournament in December, and resolved not to lose to the Falcons again; and
Whereas, in a sport that demands strength, speed, and agility, Head Coach Mark Snelgrove and his skilled coaching staff capitalized on their own athletic ability and training to build a championship team to teach these athletes lessons that will prove invaluable throughout life, both on and off the court; and
Whereas, the Senate takes great pleasure in recognizing the young men of the Midland Valley High School basketball team for leading with excellence, and the members expect to hear of continued accomplishments in the years ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the Senate, by this resolution, recognize and commend the Midland Valley High School boys varsity basketball team on an outstanding season and congratulate them on winning the 2015 Class AAA State Championship Title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Principal Carl White and Coach Mark Snelgrove.
