4/2/2019 Senators Sheehan, Valverde welcome North Kingstown High School basketball team to State House to be honored by Senate
STATE HOUSE — Sen. James C. Sheehan (D-Dist. 36, North Kingstown, Narragansett) and Sen. Bridget Valverde (D-Dist. 35, East Greenwich, North Kingstown, South Kingstown, Narragansett) welcomed the Rhode Island State Champion North Kingstown High School basketball team to the Senate chamber today where the team was presented with a Senate citation and a congratulatory resolution.

“As an alumnus of North Kingstown High School, I am extremely proud of the Skippers for this accomplishment” said Senator Sheehan. “The players and their coaches worked very hard to win this honor and distinction, and I’m glad they could be here today to be honored by the Senate.”

The North Kingstown Boys Basketball Team had an outstanding regular season in 2018-2019, compiling a stellar and league best 15-3 Division I-C record and earning a first-round bye in the Division I Boys Basketball Tournament.

In the Rhode Island State Championship Tournament that followed the Division I Tournament, the Skippers entered as the number two seed overall and plowed through the competition, handily sweeping the big Rhode Island high school boys basketball events of the 2018-2019 season.
