Island Trees Sports
The Girls Eighth-Grade Basketball Team opened up its 2000 season with a spectacular win over Plainview by a 30-27 count. Alyssa Fleming did her best imitation of Supergirl as she flew all over the court scoring 14 and playing smothering defense. Lisa LoFaso scored eight while controlling the boards at both ends. Jessica Galella added four, while Angela Barea and Lisa Provenzano added a basket. LoFaso still has the battle scars to show how tough the Bulldog defense was. Playing tenacious D were Kaitlin Schamberger, Rachael LoGatto, Keri Spiess, Jackie Mullervy, Nikka Pena, Gina Lippert, Stephanie Farag, Mary Seremeta, Shannon McAdam, Danielle Baglivo, Kate Ludewig and Michelle Llorente. If this is any indication as to how tough this team can be, this should prove to be a very exciting year. Great effort Lady Dawgs!
