New Town residents broke the winter blues by cheering on the College of William and Mary’s women’s and men’s basketball teams at January and February games in Kaplan Arena.
At the January 29th women’s game against the University of Delaware, New Towners were part of a lively crowd supporting William and Mary’s celebration of National Girl’s and Women’s Sports Day. Residents saw an exciting game in which William and Mary Tribe lost a large lead and fought back with a buzzer beating win.
The February 25th men’s game was on a particularly dreary day with steady cold rain, but nothing deterred us from attending. That Saturday, 33 residents of New Town enjoyed another great game that ended with a decisive win against the Monmouth Hawks.
Before the game, we enjoyed a pizza party in the Wightman Cup Room. Four neighborhoods of New Town were represented at this event: Abbey Commons, Charlotte Park, Shirley Park, and Village Walk. It was a nice, relaxing time to sit and visit, enjoy pizza, veggies, and cookies, and experience the game together. The eight children who wanted to sit together after the game added energy, humor, and excitement to the experience!
We are looking forward to seeing you all at our next event. We are currently planning our annual calendar with input from several of our neighbors! Join in on the fun!
