WHEREAS, Excellence and success in competitive team sports can be
achieved only through disciplined practice, teamwork and sportsmanship,
nurtured by dedicated coaching and strategic planning; and

ment of the young people of this State, preparing them for the future by
instilling them in the value of hard work and by encouraging a standard

congratulate those young people within the State of New York who, by
achieving success in athletic competition, have inspired and brought
pride to their communities; and

to the constant encouragement and dedicated efforts of Head Coach Mike

Director Buddy Wleklinski, CBA Athletic Trainer Randy Kinn, and CBA
Principal Brother Joseph Jozwiak, FSC; and
WHEREAS, Athletic competition promotes the values of teamwork, pride
and accomplishment, and the coaches and players of the Christian Broth-
ers Academy/Jamesville-DeWitt Varsity Ice Hockey Team have clearly
contributed to the pride of the Central New York community; now, there-
fore, be it
