Rocky Point High School girls basketball program recently received recognition by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for their fundraising efforts. 

The varsity and JV teams raised $1,400 during their campaign, which concluded on the last game of the year and the team’s senior night. Each member of the team had supporters donate money and sign their pink fundraising T-shirts, which were worn as warmups at the last game. A bake sale with goods made by team members also brought in funds during halftime.

This was the largest amount of money raised in the seven years Rocky Point basketball has participated. Junior captains of the varsity team Clare Levy and Madison Gennaro helped organize fundraising efforts, and JV player Kerry Campo raised the most money of any team member. 

“Rocky Point girls basketball’s commitment to this important cause shows the kind of character and integrity that makes up the entire program and pulses through each and every student-athlete,” coach Scott Lindsay said.
