WA Basketball Banquet Honors Seniors
The 2016 seniors JJ Neely and Anthony Shaver with coach Petey Moses.
(LtoR) Jr.High coach Rich Muzinski, Senior J.J. Neely, JV coach Jared Carlo, Senior Anthony Shaver, Varsity coach Petey Moses and guest speaker Jim Zardecki.
Guest Speaker Jim Zardecki, former WA basketball coach from 1983 to 1986 spoke at the basketball banquet March 6th. Mr. Zardecki talked to the players about the importance of commitment to teammates on and off the court. He advised on critical points for players and coaches to achieve success and spoke about the successes of this past season and the strong future ahead. Zardecki mentioned past relationships he developed during his time here at WA, those that still remain in tact today. His heartfelt speech was delivered to a very nice crowd at the Woodlands Inn. His hope is that our players would always remember his analogy of the strength of the tight fist he mentioned. In comparison to the fist, the tighter the team is together, the stronger they become, on and off the floor. Jim also poked fun at other sports and how much time they actually need run, think and react as compared to basketball where you are required to hustle 100% of the time during a game. The WA Boys Basketball Parents Association presented the banquet and provided gifts to the seniors. The players were also treated to a video showing player interviews. Congratulations to the seniors and thank you all for a great season. See you next year.
The WA Boys Basketball Parents Organization hosted Senior Night for our senior basketball players and cheerleaders. Senior players are Anthony Shaver and J.J. Neely.
