To the Editors:
First of all, congratulations to the Wilton Girls hoops team for their first-ever State Championship! A fantastic achievement and you should be proud of yourselves.
I also wanted to pay tribute to Mr. Mike Wilbur and those who started the Wilton Basketball Association just over a decade ago. Mike was president of the WBA for a number of years after inception and laid the groundwork for the success that both the girls and boys have enjoyed since then, culminating in the first-ever Girls State Championship this year. It should also be noted that the boys advanced far into the state tournament this year as well. So, congrats to all and to Mike Wilbur as well!
