When Zerfoss came back home she didn’t have much down time before she was on the pitch again playing with her Aztec U-15 team in a tournament that was held in Lexington and Marlborough. On Thursday she left for Raleigh, N.C., to compete in a college showcase with Aztec.
“Teams are coming to North Carolina from all over the country,” said Zerfoss. “This is our first college showcase outside Massachusetts which is exciting. We’ll play one game every day, and there will be lots of college scouts watching.”
Zerfoss will return home tomorrow, and get ready to help her Pingree hoop team. She uses her speed and ball handling skills at point guard.
“I love Pingree,” said Zerfoss. “It’s such an amazing, interesting place to go to school.”
North Shore Tech/Essex Aggie has a brand new hockey team this winter. The Bulldogs are teaming up with Mystic Valley Charter School in Malden to put a team on the ice.
“We’re really excited about this,” said North Shore AD Paul Worth. “It will be a co-op program. They had a team last year, but only had 14 kids. Their AD Marc Arria is a friend of mine, and I talked to him about combining programs to boost the numbers. That works for both of us because now they’ll have the numbers needs to compete, and we get a hockey program going.
“Right now we have seven kids playing. Four are from North Shore and three from Essex. They practice in Everett, the North End, and Charlestown.”
