They are the champions!

Borough President Adams honored some of Kings County’s best high-school and amateur athletes, aspiring scholars, and all-around achievers at his second annual “Night Honoring Brooklyn Champions” ceremony on March. 3.

Adams recognized some of Brooklyn’s winning sports teams including the boys badminton team from Franklin D. Roosevelt High School, the Wolves football team from the Grand Street Campus High School in Williamsburg and the Bedford-Stuyvesant Crusaders adult amateur minor league football team.

He also praised winners in the classroom, handing out trophies to the National Society of High School Scholars from Bedford-Stuyvesant Preparatory School and the Young Poets Society Contest winner from Andries Hudde Junior High School in Midwood.

And a hometown celebrity was on hand — the Beep honored a Coney Islander who contributed voiceover work to the “Peanuts Movie.”

Brooklyn’s champions mingled with each other after the ceremony, sharing their secrets to success.

The Beep wants to get the word out about the ceremony so he can pack in more honorees in the future.

“We would love to recognize every single effort,” said Borough Hall spokesman Stefan Ringel.
