HIGHLANDER OF THE WEEK
Stefanos Bilis '19
Varsity Boys' Basketball
December 3 - December 9 (2018)
Congratulations to Stefanos Bilis '19 for becoming our first Highlander of the Week for the winter season. This past Sunday, Bilis made the game-winning shot at the buzzer against Wilby High School during the Waterbury City Jamboree. Coach Timothy Fitzpatrick '03 described the scene...
"Playing against Wilby in front of a sold-out crowd of 800+ people can rack anyone's nerves. We were in a tough situation, down 1 point with 4.9 seconds left and needed a steal. The steal was a team effort. Jamal Clarke gave a great pass to Stefanos at the top of the key, and he drained it at the buzzer. It seemed like that shot was in the air forever, everything moved in slow motion. When it went in, the whole place, including us, went crazy. We needed Stefanos in a big way and he came through in the clutch. It's extremely rare to end a game on an actual buzzer beater, but we will forever remember "The Shot" by Stefanos." Coach Timothy Fitzpatrick '03
Congratulations to the Boys' Varsity Basketball Team for their win against Wilby during the Waterbury City Jamboree!
