COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – The National Wheelchair Basketball Association is honored to announce the NWBA Toyota Team of the Month for December. December's voting pole was the closest yet with only one percent of the votes standing between the Portland Wheelblazers - Junior Varsity and the Bennett Blazers - Junior Prep. The winning team is the Bennett Blazers - Junior Prep!
Congratulations to the Bennett Blazers. The Blazers currently have an impressive 9-0 record and James Pollard leads the team in scoring and in most statistical categories. The Blazers have demonstrated good sportsmanship during competition. At the Fairfax Tournament, the team squeezed in a 15 minute scrimmage to help three Sportable Spoke young athletes who had to play at the varsity level. David Ramos, one of the team captains, played on the Spokes team and helped distribute the ball to get all Spokes players involved.
NWBA Toyota Team of the Month winners will receive a “Team of the Month” plaque. Nominees will receive a certificate.
The NWBA thanks all athletes, coaches, and supporters for participating in December’s Toyota Team of the Month award.
January’s Toyota Team of the Month nominations are due at 12:00 pm MST on Monday, February 3. To nominate a team, fill out the form below and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
