NEW CASTLE — The New Castle High state championship basketball team has received more accolades.

The mayor and New Castle City Council presented individual commendations to 19 players and two managers of the undefeated Red Hurricane team on Tuesday.

The commendations read, in part, “Whereas, their accomplishments and victory are proof of the team members’ great character and a testament of hard work and integrity exemplifies their motto of ‘Team. Together. Everyone. Achieves. More. Together.’

Coach Ralph Blundo commented, “We’re proud that we did it the right way. And that we got the support from the community.”

A parade was held for the victorious team March 27 in the city’s downtown.

“It made us feel good,” Blundo said.
