NORTH CHANNEL – Rotarians feted the coaches and team of the North Shore High School at their luncheon on Thursday, April 17 at the Holiday Inn on I-10. The Mustang basketball team won the State 5A championship this year.

Present at the celebration were all the team members, coaches, staff, North Shore High School principal Dr. Joe Coleman, Athletic Director Vince Sebo, and Galena Park ISD superintendent Angi Williams, who is also a Rotarian.

AD Sebo opened the program, talking about the success that GPISD has had across all their sports teams. He said that the main quality a player and a team needs to win is “attitude, know that you are going to win.”

He said that you must be passionate about your sport, and “Act with character-don’t be the character.”

Head Coach David Green inspired the members of Rotary by detailing stories from the North Shore Mustangs path to the state championship.
