ASA-Wildcats had a great weekend at ZG’s Boston Breakout Challenge. They finished at 2-1 and weekend was highlighted with a 17 point come back win vs a very good MT Elite Ducks Team. Congrats girls keep up the good work.
This past week ASA-Wildcats / Waltham High School Senior Taylor Pinzone scored her 1000th point for the Hawks. Taylor has been part of the ASA family for 3 years now, it’s been a pleasure to watch her compete and the highest levels. Although many local colleges have recruited her for Basketball Taylor will accept a Lacrosse Scholarship at Northwestern University for the Fall of 2018. Taylor will look to lead the Waltham Hawks into the State Tournament and continue to add to her impressive point total.
Zaria continues to be one of the hardest workers and most consistent players at practice and it pays off. This past tournament played excellent hitting some key jump shots and getting crucial rebounds. She often times is outsized, but not outworked.
