I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR WHAT WAS ANOTHER GREAT SEASON AND I HAVE TO SAY WE DEFINITELY LEFT THE BEST FOR LAST AS THE FINISH TO THE 5TH GRADE GIRLS CHAMPIONSHIP GAME BETWEEN ST AUGUSTINES AND ST MONICAS MAY HAVE BEEN THE MOST EXCITING GAME I HAVE SEEN IN THIS LEAGUE IN THE 23 YEARS THAT I HAVE RUN IT; I FEEL BAD FOR THE ST MONICA GIRLS AS THEY PLAYED THEIR HEARTS OUT BUT CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ST AUGUSTINE GIRLS WHO NEVER QUIT AND I WANT TO THANK THE PARENTS FROM BOTH TEAMS WHO WERE WONDERFUL IN THEIR SUPPORT FOR BOTH TEAMS. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE OTHER TEAMS WHO MADE IT TO THE CHAMPIONSHIPS. I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL CHANGES THAT ARE IN PROCESS FOR NEXT SEASON THAT I THINK EVERYONE WILL LIKE AND WILL MAKE THIS LEAGUE EVEN BETTER; THESE CHANGES WILL INCLUDE STARTING THE SEASON SOONER AND ENDING IT BY THE END OF FEBRUARY SO TO AVOID ALL THE CONFLICTS WITH THE TRAVEL LEAGUES PLAYOFFS; UPGRADES TO THE WEB SITE MAKING MORE INTERACTIVE; THE SCHEDULE WILL BE OUT FOR THE COMPLETE SEASON PRIOR TO THE FIRST GAME; CHANGES IN THE PLAYOFF FORMAT; A FULL SCHEDULE FOR 4TH GRADE BOYS & GIRLS TEAMS; ETC. I HAVE ASSEMBLED A STRONG GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE COMMITTED TO MAKING THIS LEAGUE EVEN BETTER AND WE WILL BE WORKING OVER THE SPRING AND SUMMER ON THESE CHANGES AND OTHERS. ANYONE WITH OPINIONS AND IDEAS ARE WELCOME TO SEND ME AN EMAIL AND I PROMISE YOU SUGGESTIONS WILL BE STRONGLY CONSIDERED. THANK YOU AND I CAN BE REACHED AT johnvitulli@comcast.net
