A Clean Sweep For Redfern Police Athletic League Cornerstone
Three basketball teams from the PAL Redfern Cornerstone recently captured the PAL-Beacon Basketball Championship at Goldie Maple Academy. The Jazzy Rockers 13-and-under boys team, along with 14-and-under and the Ahmed All-Stars 16-and-under each beat teams from Ocean Village, Goldie Maple, Campus Magnet (Brooklyn) Sorrentino Team Deuce and other Brooklyn programs. Ahmed Woods coached the Ahmed All-Stars, and Jeffrey “Jazz” Moye coached both Jazzy Rockers teams.
Coach Woods said camaraderie and chemistry were the two key factors for each team winning a championship. Both squads want to thank PAL Outreach worker Manny Fiallo for his tireless help. The teams also want to thank Coach Turner and Alicia DeSilva, program coordinator at PAL Redfern, for their help in organizing a banquet awards dinner for the players on May 7.
