Challengers Practice with Wizards

The district’s Challenger basketball team has been collaborating this year with the New York Wizards professional Eastern Basketball Alliance team. In January, three members of the Wizards and Coach Cerillo volunteered to assist the Challenger team with their skills. Together they practiced shooting and passing drills, as well as basic warm-up exercises. In addition to the Wizards, peers on the JFK Middle School and Bethpage High School basketball teams also volunteer frequently to assist Challenger teammates with their practice.
The Challenger team practices once a week and will hold games in February, March and April against the nine other Challenger teams on Long Island. The team is co-coached by Jennifer Mulholland. This is the third year the team has been in Bethpage.
