On Saturday, December 24th, 2006, Team 25 lost an alumni and friend, Mike Messeroll. Mike was tragically killed that Christmas Eve morning while crossing a highway here in North Brunswick. Mike loved doing hands-on repairs and was a 2003 alumni of Team 25, after being an active member of the team for 3 years. As a senior, Mike was an integral part of the Drive Team, not just as a co-driver but as a friend as well.
Team 25 dedicated the 2006-2007 season in memory of Mike. The team, parents, mentors and alumni wore arm bands during the competitions in dedication to Mike and his family.
