City of champions

Councilor Coletta presents proclamation to Charlestown Coach Hugh Colman

Councilor Coletta presents proclamation to Charlestown Coach Hugh Colman

The Boston City Council today officially honored the city's four state-championship teams with proclamations - and pizza: Charlestown High School, whose boys basketball team won the Division 3 state championship, New Mission High School, whose boys basketball team won the Division 5 championship, the Josiah Quincy Upper School's girls wrestling team brought home medals in Division 2 and Boston Latin School, whose hockey team won the Division 2 championship.

Coach Hugh Colman, himself a Charlestown High alumnus, had a particular reason to be proud of his team - his son, Jaylen Hunter-Coleman, is a player.

"I still drive around and scream: 'State champions!" New Mission Athletic Director Malcolm Smith told councilors. Smith praised his champions for turning themselves around and going on a 9-0 run that led them to their division championship. "They worked for it, they earned it, that's for sure, they earned it," he said:

Josiah Quincy wrestling coach Malaky Lewis noted his team's wins were the first state titles in school history, but said there is more to sports than just competing: "We do it for growth and integrity, growth and consistency, and confidence:"

Boston Latin School hockey Coach Frank Woods praised his team for the way it won over a tough Tewksbury team 4-2 by scoring three goals in the last few minutes of their game. "They outlasted, out-willed and out-toughed that team and that's whey they're champions:"

They are too busy trying to stop the cops from draining their school budget for details and finding ways to overcome the damage that has done to actual school security.
