Boys' Varsity Basketball is off to a strong start thus far and had a nice weekend earning two wins over Berwick (Friday) and Landmark (Saturday) improving to 3-0. The Bobcats have several players contributing in these first few weeks but over the weekend it was the play of Zining An (Jerry) that stood out. An, who has not been in the rotation at this point of the season until Friday night, made huge contributions over the weekend which took everyone by surprise.
"Jerry came up big for us this weekend," noted head coach, Matt Lawlor. "We found ourselves in foul trouble early in the second half against Berwick and we needed someone to step up and that is exactly what he did!"
Jerry's contributions included grabbing some key rebounds and defending Berwick's stellar inside post presence on Friday night and picked up a momentum swinging charge on Saturday against Landmark. "I knew Jerry would help us out at some point this year," noted Lawlor. "But, he is still learning our system and it can be a lot to take in. Regardless, he just played on instinct this weekend and really bailed us out. We are looking forward to seeing what he can do the rest of the way!"
