The Francis Lewis girls’ junior varsity basketball team completed the brief 2008 portion of its 2008-09 season in impressive fashion, winning its first two games by an average of 43.5 points.
Clarissa Gallagher has easily been the biggest reason for Francis Lewis (2-0) coasting to such easy victories thus far.
Gallagher led Francis Lewis in scoring in each game, recording 23 points in a 62-10 thrashing of Springfield Gardens on December 8th. She then posted 31 points in a 54-19 dismantling of the Queens High School Of Teaching on December 22nd.
Gallagher isn’t all about scoring, however. She can mix it up to pull down some boards and also looks to set up her teammates. In addition to her 27 points per game, Gallagher is averaging 4.5 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game, making her one to watch in 2009.
