RIVERTOWNS, N.Y. -- Hastings boys basketball captain Francesco Scioscia was honored as a recipient of the Court of Excellence at the Section 1 Lower Hudson Coaches Basketball Association Awards Dinner last month.
This award recognizes senior scholar-athletes in Westchester, Putnam and Rockland counties who combine ability and teamwork on the court with success in the classroom and contributions to the community.
Scioscia was one of only 10 seniors in all of Section 1 to receive this honor.
The award is presented to a student-athlete who has excelled in the classroom and on the court, and demonstrated a commitment to community service.
Among the many accomplishments included on his application, Scioscia was a three-year varsity basketball player and starter who was an All-League selection the past two seasons, while also lettering in varsity football the past three seasons, making All-League this fall. In his senior basketball season, he led the team in almost every statistical category, including points, rebounds and assists.
In the classroom, Scioscia has achieved a 93.84 GPA to date at Hastings High School, while earning perfect scores in two of his four Advanced Placement courses. The strongest part of Scioscia’s resume is in his work in the school community, where he is well-known through his work as a peer leader, a member of Amnesty International and Project Share, while also working in various other community service initiatives within the village.
