Last night, the REM Broadway office’s own basketball team, LIFO the Party, won their league championships. We are very proud and happy that we became league champions in our first year as a team, and we look forward to many more championships.
Thanks to Coach Neal Kilbane for allowing/approving the team’s participation in the league. As AJ DaPonte points out, “Neal was there from warmups of the first game through the championship game’s final whistle!” Thanks also to Erica Collins, Selma Yilmaz, and Elizabeth Froemke, as well as the significant others of some of the team members, who showed their support from the stands during the season.
The league was organized through Zog Sports. Regular season games began in October and were played at Xavier High School on West 16th Street every week on Thursday night, through Thanksgiving week, culminating in a one-day playoffs and championship Thursday, December 1. LIFO also won second place in the regular season standings.
Team roster, in order of approximate percentage of games attended: Daniel Perez; Charles Hunter; Andrew Statsky; Raymond Batista; Arthur J. “A.J.” DaPonte; Alicia McGlynn; Victor “Dutch” Dennis; Ross Lorber; Jackie Ammirato; Amanda Rinaldo; Victor Le; Jennifer Burroughs; Monika Andrzejkiewicz; Paul Ciaramella; Carlos Savinon; Brian Glavotsky; Keith deVisser; Daeil Yu.
