Congratulations to Aces Head Coach Gregg Downer and his wife Colleen on their recent marriage. The two tied the knot on Friday, July 21 at the Bonnett Island Mansion on Long Beach Island, NJ.

During one particularly humorous moment, Coach Downer was called onto the dance floor to re-enact his state championship victory dance in celebration of the "ultimate championship," his marriage to Colleen. Donning a pair of tennis sneakers (a la the game in Hershey) provided by brother Brad, Coach sprinted onto the dance floor, did his unique (if totally rhythm-less) dance moves to the sounds of Queen's "We are the Champions," leapt into the arms of Coach Vernick (playing the part of Pete Lucas) and finally, kissed his wife.

Aces Nation was well represented at the wedding, with coaches past and present in attendance, including Mike Egan, Jon Fadely, Chris Rumsy, Jeremy Treatman, Chris Vernick, Doug Young and of course, brother Drew Downer.

The Downers will spend their honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
