Warwick basketball celebrates Senior Night

February 22, 2019

The athletics department celebrated their senior basketball players at the last regular season home game on Feb. 19.

Jonah Bevacqua is a senior captain and two-year varsity starter. Jonah is having an outstanding season, averaging over 12 points and 9 rebounds per game. Having a center that can step outside and shoot threes has made it very difficult for teams to defend. Jonah’s offensive versatility has played a large part in the team’s success. Jonah is unselfish and always looking to set his teammates up.  Next year Jonah will be looking to study communications. The schools that he is interested in include: Hunter College, Kean University, and Farmingdale State College.

Zac Goldstein is a three-year varsity starter and captain who enters tonight’s contest 12 points shy of 1000 for his career. Zac’s season averages of 20 points and 10 rebounds per game rank among the best in the section. Zac has scored over 20 points in ten of the games this season, including 36 points against Chester and 32 points against Port Jervis. He has continued to improve each year and has added elements to his game that will make him a terrific collegiate player. Zac has many schools interested in him and is currently undecided on where he will attend. He will look to study business management next fall. 

Josiah Joseph is our senior starting point guard and captain who has played on varsity for three years. Josiah has been a key piece to our success and enters tonight averaging 12 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists per game, while shooting 83% from the free throw line. His full court pressure bothers his opponents and his quick first step makes it almost impossible to stay in front of him on defense. Josiah was voted the MVP of the Mustang Classic Holiday Tournament in which he helped lead Warwick to the championship. Next year Josiah wants to attend Iona College or SUNY Purchase. 

Harsev Singh is a two-year varsity player and has been an important role player for our team this year. He has started four games and has been a leader in our locker room all season. ‘H’ is willing to do anything for this program and his work ethic and positive attitude will be missed next year. Harsev is a role model in school as well and maintains an average of over 100. Next year he will look to study pre-med at one of the following schools: Cornell, UVA, Boston College, Villanova, Colgate, UConn, Binghamton or Fordham.

Jaquil Tucker has been a three-year varsity player for the Warwick program. After suffering an injury that cost him 14 games last year, Jaquil has been a centerpiece for our team this season. He is the best defender on our team and one of the top defender’s in the section. Jaquil is asked to guard the opponent’s best player and has done a terrific job accepting the challenge. Next year Jaquil hopes to continue playing basketball at Dutchess Community College or Lackawanna College, where he plans to study marketing. Tonight he will be joined by his mother Nerlane Sterling and his sister Isabella and brother Daniel.
