Top seniors play final games today


Niagara Gazette — “Seeing her play one last time will be a little emotional,” Baker said of Curry, who will play at Division III Fredonia next season. “It's always good seeing the players, talking, mingling, joking around and having a good time.

“It’s a fun event, but these girls are still highly competitive. There's still plenty of trash talk."


While the girls prepare for their games in Cheektowaga, another group of senior all-stars will represent the Niagara Frontier League boys in the 16th annual Paul R. Missana Memorial Silver Hoops Classic at Buffalo’s Grabiarz School.

This year’s NFL team features a pair of players from Niagara Falls — Jermaine Crumpton and J.J. Wilkins — along with Quinton Campbell and Shay Cuadra of Kenmore West, Jack Mulcahy of Niagara-Wheatfield, Ian Gilhousen of North Tonawanda, Pat Schroeder of Kenmore East and Lewiston-Porter’s Nick Mansour and MarcAnthony Paonessa.

Ryan Mountain of North Tonawanda gets the nod as coach for the second straight year. The NFL will square off against the all-stars from the ECIC at 2 p.m.

“It’s a great day for the seniors,” Niagara-Wheatfield coach Erik O’Bryan said. “It’s exactly what an all star game is meant to be — a good time for everyone.”
