Wheatley Senior Reaches Basketball Scoring Milestone
Alicia DeFino, a senior at The Wheatley School, joined an elite group of basketball alumni by scoring her 500th point in a game earlier in the 2003-2004 season. When she finishes her career at Wheatley, DeFino will be fourth on the list of scoring leaders. DeFino, who has been a starter since ninth grade when she played the guard position, has been used exclusively at the forward and center positions for the past three years. Last year, she set the single season record for rebounds with 187 and she will finish her Wheatley career as one of the school's leading rebounders. As a junior, DeFino received All-County honors.
