Honors for NSHS Basketball Stars

With the 2009-2010 season over, several players from the North Shore High School Girls Basketball team received End of Year Awards recognition from opposing coaches.

Three players were recognized with All-Conference Honors, meaning that they were one of the top players in the Conference, juniors Elizabeth Sheerin and Jackie Gioia and freshman Erin Sheerin (who finished 7th in Nassau County in assists). Senior Elle Hoffman (10 points per game and 3rd in Nassau County in 3-point shots) and sophomore Amanda Johansen (10 points per game, 9.8 rebounds which was 3rd in the county and 4.9 assists which was 2nd in the county) received All-Class Honors (meaning that they were both top players in all of Class A).

Senior Kathleen Lennon won All-County honors. For a player to be All-County that means that she was one of the top players in all of Nassau County, regardless of Class. Kathleen averaged 15.2 points per game (16th in the county) and 12 rebounds, which was good for #1 in Nassau County.

 In addition, senior Jennifer Melgar was recognized for athletic and academic achievements as the Scholar/Athlete Award winner and All-Academic New York State.

The team also should be recognized for their basketball achievements. North Shore averaged just under 61 points per game, which was good for #1 in Nassau County. In addition, the girls hit 110 3-pointers, which led the county and seems to be a record number for Nassau County (complete records are not available for all years). Finally, seniors Elle Hoffman and Kathleen Lennon represented North Shore in the Senior All-Star game on March 20 at St. Joseph’s College and both played extremely well.
