This is a station editorial, I'm Randal J. Miller, station president.
I'm here to congratulate the Monticello Sages boys basketball team, for their second place finish in the Illinois High School Association Class 2-A State Playoffs at the State Farm Center in Champaign on March 12th.
Our soft hits music station WEZC 95-point-9, which has been the Radio Voice of Monticello Sages Sports for many years, followed the team thru-out the season and to Champaign where we were honored to broadcast the call of the 2 games played there.
Our long-time WEZC Sages play by play announcer Seth Laurence, and long-time color commentator Ray Wichus, brought the games to listeners across Central Illinois on the radio as well as streamed at dewittdailynews.com.
Head coach Kevin Roy and the Sages boys basketball team also ended up with the best record of any boys basketball team in Sages history, finishing 33-and-4 and 9-and-one in the Illini Prairie Conference.
We congratulate Coach Roy and the Sages on their great season. We know that not only the town of Monticello, but all of Central Illinois, are proud of the team on how they played as well as how their well-represented their community.
The Sages are a great example of what small town high school sports are all about. In our many years of my stations broadcasting high school sports, it's typically the biggest thing going on that people then talk about the next day.
That's part of small town living, and that's why our radio group is honored to serve so many great communities in our coverage areas.
It's what makes our towns the vibrant, close-knit communities that more and more people are moving TO.
Again, congratulations to Monticello Sages head basketball coach Kevin Roy, and the 2021-22 Sages basketball team, for their great season culminating in their second place finish in the Class 2-A State Basketball Tournament March 12th.
Feel free to post YOUR congratulations on our WHOW/WEZC/dewittdailynews.com Facebook page!
I'm station president Randal J. Miller.
