Tolsia Head Coach Brian Stacy
“… It was a great day for our community, the stands were packed all day long and just seeing the smiles on the kids faces when they get announced and get to run out on the floor under the spotlight is what it’s all about. Had one kid tell me after his game in the locker room while he was eating cake that this way the best day ever. And that means a lot to us as a program. Huge thank you to everyone involved it was a fantastic day from beginning to end.”
