Recording a triple-double at the high school level is a rare and remarkable feat in its own right. One-upping that and finishing with a quadruple-double is nearly unprecedented territory.
On Friday night in Hamilton, Generals junior guard Billy Whelan did just that. The versatile facilitator went off for 15 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and a whopping 10 steals in what is believed to be the first quadruple-double in school history.
"Honestly, I have never really thought about those crazy stats before," said Whelan. "When I got my fourth foul (assistant) coach West told me I had a triple double and I didn't really think about it at first. I was just worried about winning the game. But after the game was awesome in the locker room with all my teammates."
It was a performance to remember for the young playmaker, and picking up a 66-58 win over Cape Ann League rival Manchester Essex was the icing on the cake. Jake Lanciani added 13 points, James Lustig had 14 and Cole Dwyer scored 12 to help the Generals move to 12-2 overall and avenge on of their two CAL defeats in the process.
