Dear Neighbor,
New London Basketball Team Celebration at Session
I had one of the great days I've had this week yesterday. I was able to honor the City of New London, Connecticut Championship Girls Basketball team, inviting them to the Capitol to present them with trophies. They had the chance to eat, meet and celebrate with the Championship UCONN Men's basketball team as they were also recognized yesterday.
Thank you to Governor Ned Lamont for meeting with our champions to congratulate them for their great success, especially being a team of seven players that took the win. Big big "Shout Out" and thanks to Coach Tammy Millsap and Assistant Coaches Jada Lucas, Coach Sawyer, and Coach Kendra.
