This week’s athlete of the week is Amanda Latkany. She is a current freshman on the girls varsity basketball team. She recently had 15 points in their semi-final game against Somers and went 7-8 from the foul line.

 

Amanda is known for her game-winning shot against Somers that landed her team a spot in the section finals against Harrison. Outside of school, Amanda plays AAU basketball with “The Empire State Blue Flames” and is also on the varsity girls golf team earning all-league and all section for as an eighth grader. She has been raising money for the Rye Nature Center in the second annual Birdies for Birds Golf Charity/Tournament. She also received the Math Award in the past Awards Assembly.

 

Latkany said, “Team dinners are always a great way to bond with my teammates, they are before every Home game. I really enjoy spending time with the team on and off the court.” Latkany also wanted to add, “being in the finals on Saturday isn’t solely because of my shot. It is because of the overall effort and hard work from all my teammates in practice and in our games that have got us this far. We all work so well together and I am proud to be apart of such a kind and hard-working group of people.”
