The team received a proclamation from the city.
The 14 –and-under boys basketball team of the Police Athletic League was recognized at the June 27 City Commission for winning the state championship for their age division. They received a proclamation stating the date was a day to honor them for practicing many hours at the South Ormond Recreation Center and displaying sportsmanship.
At a tournament in April in Jacksonville, they beat teams from several cities including Port Orange, Jacksonville and Key West.
“Thank you to the coaches, recreation center staff and parents,” said Mayor Ed Kelley.
