Wantagh Middle School students collectively raised $7,000 for the American Heart Association’s annual Hoops for Heart event in the gymnasium. Rachael Brite was the top fundraiser having collected $1,000.
The fundraiser coincided with a basketball fitness unit with physical education teachers Eileen Keener, Thomas Ligouri and Gary Reh, and a knockout basketball game tournament. Dennis Milashouskas and Meghan Tucker demonstrated their athletic abilities on the court by taking the lead on the boys and girls teams.
