Ward Melville High School junior Lauren Hansen and senior Alex Sobel have been named to the “Top 25 Basketball Players on Long Island to Watch” list by Newsday.

Lauren is considered one of the top players on Long Island because of her ball-handling and shooting – both of which have drawn interest from high-level Division I programs. 

Alex, who is one of the tallest players in Suffolk, is said to “control the paint every night,” delivering, for instance, a 22-point, 24-rebound performance against Sachem North last year. He averaged 17.8 points per game last year.

Congratulations to both Patriots on earning this recognition!
