Bowie City Council Honors CIAA Champion Bulldogs Basketball Team


BOWIE, Md. - The Bowie City Council honored the Bowie State University men's basketball team with a resolution recognizing their "outstanding accomplishments" at Bowie City Hall tonight. PHOTOS 
The Proclamation of Recognition presented to head coach Darrell Brooks, the assistant coaches and players by Council members Todd Turner and BSU alumnus Isaac Trouth noted the teams’ tournament successes and post season regional play.

As Council member Turner presented the proclamation to the Bulldogs, his remark of “I know it (the CIAA Championship) was maybe not expected”, Council member Trouth was quick to correct Council member Turner (with a chuckle) saying “It was expected … Excellence is the only acceptable standard for us.” 

Council member Turner then read the proclamation aloud, concluding "The Council of the City of Bowie takes great pride in congratulating the team on a great season and we wish the Bulldogs continued success in the future."

Head Coach Darrell Brooks thanked the City of Bowie for the award and closed the remarks with, “These guys worked really hard and earned everything they got this year.”

The Bulldogs finished their season 16-14, after claiming their second CIAA tournament title (March 2nd) and earned a berth in the NCAA tournament where Bowie State lost its opening round game to West Liberty.  Bowie State’s other men’s CIAA Championship occurred 10 years and one day (2003) to their first championship.
