Hebbs Retire From Basketball After 22 Years of Service to Recreational Sports
South River Youth Athletics has been around as a blended athletic leave for a couple of years. Before it was SRYA, there were three Edgewater athletic leagues: Mayo, Edgewater and Greater South River. You need to know that little bit of history to know just how long Pam and Mike Hebb have been involved in youth basketball.
For 22 years, that’s how long.
To give a little perspective on 22 years ago, the first George Bush was president of the United States. He asked Congress in 1991 to wage the first Gulf War. In 1991, Seinfield, the TV show made its debut. Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson played one another in the NBA final.
Now, the 2012-13 winter basketball season is wrapping up and the Hebbs are retiring.
They’ve mentored hundreds and hundreds of children through the program, from beginners with no skills to high school players who go on to compete for their high school and even college teams.
At South River High School on Tuesday night, SRYA presented the Hebbs with a trophy honoring their service.
SRYA President Mike Sweeney and Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Department Director Rick Anthony gave brief remarks, thanking the Hebbs for all of their hard work over the years.
