From your team here at the LBA, congratulations Tony and we could not be more proud of you!

While at the ceremony, Tony, his players, and staff were surrounded by famous olympic athletes, even having famed English gold medalist, Amy Williams, present Tony his Coach of the Year award. Amy was kind enough to even pose for pictures, as well as show LBA players her gold medal!

The LBA would also like to give a special shout out to Jade Johnson, a silver medalist who competed in the Commonwealth Games, for talking to our LBA players and offering them motivational advice and words of wisdom!

We would also like to recognize Helouise Marissa Michel-Roseman, an LBA volunteer basketball coach who took home second place in the “Active Volunteer of the Year” category!

Congratulations Helouise and thank you for all that you do for the LBA!
