winning the 2013 New York State Championship

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
  WHEREAS, Athletic competition enhances the moral and physical develop-
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
of healthy living; and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative  Body  to  recognize  and
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
  WHEREAS,  This  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to congratulate the
Christian Brothers Academy/Jamesville-DeWitt  Varsity  Ice  Hockey  Team
upon the occasion of winning the 2013 New York State Championship; and
  WHEREAS,  The Christian Brothers Academy/Jamesville-DeWitt Varsity Ice
Hockey Team captured the Division II New York State Public  High  School

the Utica Auditorium on March 10, 2013; and

to the constant encouragement and dedicated efforts of Head  Coach  Mike
McKie,  Assistant  Coaches  John  Parks  and Shaun Norfolk, CBA Athletic
Director Buddy Wleklinski, CBA Athletic  Trainer  Randy  Kinn,  and  CBA

contributed to the pride of the Central New York community; now,  there-
