EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The Bears banquet was at the Days Inn Banquet Room on Sunday May 21. The banquet was a time for all the players and coaches that are apart of the high school baseball teams to reflect on the season.

The coaches from all different levels gave speeches mainly focusing on their appreciation for their players’ hard work and dedication. Also, all of the Seniors on the team including Evan Dekhayser, Nick Martino, Christian Shelley, Jay Marchese, Matt Nelson, Ryan Flynn, David Paribello, Matt Bartus, and Tyler Burnham all gave speeches. The speeches consisted of their memories throughout their time playing for East Brunswick, especially their first year becoming a Bear. The player speeches focused on how they grew as an individuals and how they formed a “family” with their teammates. Not only were the players focused on their baseball family but they also gave a tremendous amount of appreciation to their parents and family, especially top board member Cathy Burnham.

The Seniors were given gifts, wishing them luck in the future and to remind them that they will always be a Bear. The players were shown a slideshow of moments during the whole season and it put a smile on all of their faces as they reflected on great times. Lastly, a great moment at the banquet was the Bears giving Sophomore Connor Cheung a number one fan plaque as he showed great support and cheered on the Bears all season long.
