Special Section: You can say ‘thank you’ to the ’Canes!

NEW CASTLE — It was a season like no other in New Castle basketball history.

Now, it’s time to say thanks for the special memories.

You can share your gratitude with members of the team and coaching staff in a special section we’re producing at The News. In 100 words or less, let coach Ralph Blundo and his team know why you think they were such a special squad.

Was it the hustle? The chemistry? The leadership qualities? Something else?

This is your chance to make your voice heard. And we know the team is excited to receive your thoughts.

Just e-mail your responses to Tim Kolodziej at tkolodziej@ncnewsonline.com. The deadline for your submissions is Tuesday, May 7.

We’ll compile your notes and package them along with other special reflections from the season. The keepsake section will be a gift to all players and coaches, and we’ll offer a limited number to members of the public.

Once again, we’d love for you to share your thoughts as a unique gift for team members and coaches. Simply e-mail them to tkolodziej@ncnewsonline.com and we’ll take care of the rest.

We can’t wait to read yours!

(If you have already submitted your “thank you” or you are planning to, your name will automatically be entered into a drawing for a free DVD recapping the incredible season of the ’Canes! So don’t delay!)
