Flynn and Flynn coaches Bill Murphy and Jim Hurley from the Rockaway Little League have celebrated victory parties for the Champion Major Girls Softball team since 2003, and this year was no exception.

The team met on August 27, at the Msgr. William F. Burke- Rockaway Council #2672, Knights of Columbus Hall, for an afternoon celebration.

The thirteen girls present were presented with championship sweatshirts, trophies, and beautifully decorated and personalized ceramic baseball banks (courtesy of Sue Hurley). They enjoyed cookies, cake, and soda and team companionship.

Special awards were presented to Ashley Raaf as Most Valuable Player, Alexis O' Connor for Sportsmanship, Becky O' Connor for Outstanding Player and Kimberly Keane for Most Improved Player.

Awards were given at the beach. Left to right: Jim Hurley, Sophia Zweifler, Catherine Muldoon and Bill Murphy. Awards were given at the beach.

The remaining players who could attend the party were met and presented awards on September 16 at the Beach 139 Street beach wall.

The coaches wish the best to our girls as they head to high school and may your every dream come true! We hope to see all of the other girls back with the Rockaway Little League next spring and in the meantime, keep those bats fired up!

Many thanks to the parents who gave so much of themselves and to the Msgr. William F. Burke- Rockaway Councul#2672, Knights of Columbus, for donating the renovated Bridal Suite/Meeting Room for our celebration.
