This winter the varsity basketball team will try to surpass the success they achieved just a season ago.

Led by Coach Fazio the team made a deep run into the tournament that included a nail biting win over St. Johns Prep. However, the magic ended at Lawrence High School, where the team went down to Central Catholic, 61-48.

Despite the letdown last March, captain John Pisacreta feels confident about the upcoming year. “I think we will be really good,” said the captain, who believes the team will make a “deep run” in the tournament this year. However, he feels the team needs to “come together” in order to be successful and stated that the team played better during summer and fall leagues when doing so. John also feels that he needs to improve his shot and become a leader this season.

The buzz around AHS is immense as the new year approaches and students are excited. The Jungle  even created an advertisement for opening night that has been shown on the televisions in the café.
