Meier gives Bartelso boys basketball team their due on House floor
Rep. Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) recently backed a resolution honoring the Bartelso Elementary School boys basketball championship team.
HR856 honors the Bartelso Braves for their 2018 Class S state championship, a feat that is well deserved, Meier said on the House floor.
“This afternoon I would like to recognize the Bartelso boys basketball team, who went undefeated all year,” Meier said while handing off the resolution, which wished the boys team many more successful years on the court. “They won the state championship, and they are here today with their superintendent. Tom Siegler, and their coach, Tim Moore.”
After reading off the names of each team member, Meier continued the accolades.
“This school was recognized in 2015 for being the one of the No. 1 schools in the state for education, and they spend less than $7,000 a year per student to be educated,” Meier said. “Congratulations again to the Bartelso boys for winning the Class S title.”
