Please see below the note received by Kinnelon Athletic Director, Scott Rosenberg last evening.  Recipient:  Domonique Wirsing, Volleyball and Basketball

Mr. Rosenberg,

I just wanted to thank you for allowing Domonique to be honored in the Women’s & Sports Day. The event was run beautifully and it was quite inspiring to be in room full of such accomplished women athletes. We really enjoyed the luncheon and game and it was great to share it with Coach Finke who has had such a positive influence on Domonique during high school.

Thanks again,

Tom & Denise Wirsing
