She arrived as a freshman and helped the Wolverines claim the Bronx A South Division championship, blossomed as a sophomore when Science fell just a game shy of winning back-to-back division titles, and is currently a veteran leader on a Wolverines team that has started the season 5-0 and owns a share of first place in the division. more
