Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  The Emerald claim all the hardware ~ now with the 2023 season officially over! We Crown our New Champions, “The Celtics,” after a long 11-year hiatus.

  A tough year to say the least. We started with 8 teams, knocked down to 5. Lots of Forfeits, no shows, players missing at practices … etc.! So, we are looking forward to our 2023-2024 campaign, because it has to be better than this year by a long shot. #ReturnToExcellence #CommishKen

  We’d like to thank ALL the Coaches, Players, Refs, Parents & any other Person(s) who got involved this season and did their part to help the program. As always Commissioner Ken Mazonson for getting the job done & making sure we had another season in the books. Hard work goes a long way #GoodKarma

  Congratulations to the other winners this season as well: Hot Shot Champion (Celtics) Timmy Melton; Back-to-Back 3-point Champion (Celtics) Oscar Ruan, who won it last year in a Hawks uniform; our Free Throw Champ (Bullets) C. Mijar @ 78.0%; followed by (Kings) B. McMahon @ 75.0%; our Scoring Champ (Kings) B. McMahon @ 21.7%; followed by (Bullets) L. Guertin @ 21.0%; Season 3-point leader (Celtics) T. Melton with 32 total; followed by (Bullets) L. Guertin with 25 total.

  And as always, any current/former players, coaches, parents, friends.

  If you’d like to help/volunteer in any way, we’d love to have you.

  Stay in touch over the summer. See you ALL in December 2023.

  Thanks Again,

MNBL Booster/Statman/Former Coach
