CONGRATULATIONS TO ZAKIYA SAUNDERS (CARTHAGE)!!
"Z" has committed to play for Division I SUNY-Albany next year. With offers from numerous Division I schools across the Northeast and South, Zakiya surprised many in making the decision to play her college ball close to home. Zakiya is one of the most talented all-around players to every don a Unity Wildcats uniform. A gifted scorer, playmaker, defender, rebounder with a natural understanding of the game of basketball, Z is headed for great success at the next level. Though we were only fortunate enough to have Zakiya Saunders as a member of the Unity Wildcats for one season, she leaves a lasting positive impression and legacy with all those who coached and played with her.
Zakiya signed her National Letter of Intent with the Great Danes at Carthage High School on Monday November 19, 2012.
After a standout career that saw her lead her Cicero-North Syracuse team to three Class AA NYSPHSAA Final Four appearances and two State Championships, talented point guard Abbey Timpano decided she had had enough of basketball and wanted to focus on college academics and college life after high school graduation. Well, life never seems to go as planned.
While playing pickup basketball once she arrived on the Marist campus, Abbey T was spotted by one of Marist's astute assistant coaches who urged her to try out for the team. Not surprisingly, Abbey was chosen to play on the team and will join our long list of Division I Unity Wildcat alumnae as she embarks on her college basketball career.
Congratulations, Abbey!!! The entire Unity Wildcats family will be rooting for you!!!
COLLEGE CHOICES OF OUR CLASS OF 2013 SENIORS WILL BE POSTED AS THEY MAKE THEIR FINAL CHOICES.
