They also expressed their congratulations to Wiesner, who was named first-place champion in the 9- and 10-year-old boys’ division and Hernandez, who recorded her fastest time of 26.59, placing third in the girls’ competition.
The NBA awarded Wiesner a three-day all-expense paid trip to New York City to the NBA FIT Dribble, Dish & Swish finals, held during the NBA All-Star weekend from Feb. 13-15.
