The Wamsutta Celtics are champions of the Attleboro Youth Basketball Association for the third year in a row. Coach Tom Sheerin and Brenda Furtado have coached another season in the AYBA resulting in a victory.
Sheerin and Furtado have been coaching together since their boys Dante and Cameron became fifth-graders at Wamsutta Middle School three years ago. Their dedication and commitment to the youth at Wamsutta and throughout the league is unconditional.
Each year, the AYBA groups teams into fifth-/sixth-grade boys and girls teams and seventh-/eighth-grade boys and girls teams. For the past three years, Sheerin and Furtado have coached all ages at the boys level teaching commitment, teamwork and self-esteem.
"These boys played great team basketball," Sheerin said. "They looked for each other, fed off each other and played for each other!"
Furtado added, "The commitment from these boys and the hard work paid off. These boys worked hard, listened and played team ball."
Sheerin and Furtado look forward to next year where both their boys will be eighth-graders at Wamsutta.
