As the midpoint of the basketball season approaches, the Lady Dragons of Levittown’s Division Avenue High School are on top in Conference A2 with a 6-0 record and sole possession of first place.                 

The Dragons are led by leading scorer and rebounder Laura Stuart. Laura has recorded four double doubles thus far this season. Floor leader and point guard Taylor Calabrese leads the team in assists while running a very potent offense.

Adding tremendous shooting and aggressive defense are Tiffany Rodriguez and Kristin Aquila. Rodriguez was named to the All-Tournament Team this year at the Freeport High School Holiday Tournament, while Aquila leads the team in steals and scored 18 points in a win over Bethpage that propelled the girls into first place.                  

Returning to varsity from last year are Gina Fader, Trish Mollo and Julie Weidler. These girls are true leaders and bring intense defense, strong rebounding skills and a will to win to each game. Adding valuable minutes to a total team effort are Kim Beattie, Kristine Chavez and Brianna DeMilia. All three girls are new to the varsity team this year.                 

Rounding out this year’s squad are freshmen Erica Bleimeyer and Jess Fressle. Both girls play power forward and have helped the Lady Dragons dominate the offensive and defensive glass this season.

 If the Lady Dragons continue their winning ways, another run in the playoffs could be on the horizon.

I have watched 4 of these girls who have played together from middle school to high school Laura Stuart leaves it all on the floor. She will size you up then break you down. Taylor Calabrese does what a point guard should do. If your open she will get you the ball. Trish Mollo will be on the court looking like shes lost then BAM she will hit you for a quick 10 pts.Kristin Aquila will beat you anyway she needs to She can score ,rebound, block your shot and steal the ball. Before you know it she is heading the other way for a basket. When you have 1 of these girls on the court your team is in good shape .When 2 are on the court your in great shape. Put 3 of them on the floor and you wont have to worry. Put all of them on the floor together you wont need a coach as they are all skilled and blend together. They all know where the other one is on the court at all times. With the rest of the girls playing the way the can this team will go far
