CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FEBRUARY STUDENTS OF THE MONTH

JAMES MORAN - ATHLETICS

James has been a great leader and a tremendously hard working player for the Waldwick Warriors boy’s basketball team this season. He is usually the first to arrive at practice, and the last to leave. James has really improved throughout the season, making strides to become one of the best big men in our league. All of his hard work and commitment culminated in James outscoring and outplaying his match-up (who is a first team all-county selection) in the second round state playoff game on February 29th.
