Rock Valley College's national basketball championship continues to resonate in the community. April was proclaimed as Rock Valley basketball month at Monday's City Council meeting.
"It's big because everybody knows Rock Valley is there but we've never been recognized by these people in the community," Jefferson grad Jared Mayes, who won the NJCAA Division III Player of the Year, says. "It's a great feeling."
The national title was the first in program history for the Golden Eagles men's basketball team.
