O’Brien represents in all-star game

Senior Erin O’Brien scored four points on two free-throws and a layup against the highest-rated girls’ basketball players from Indian River County in the All Star Senior Showcase last Sunday at Florida Preparatory Academy. The game pitted players from the Space Coast against those from the Treasure Coast.

“At first I was a little nervous to play in the game because I felt like I wasn’t as good as the other girls and did not attend the practice they held, but it was a good experience,” O’Brien said.

O’Brien was selected to play in the game after leading the Lady Wildcats varsity team in points, blocks and rebounds during the season.

“She played great,” sophomore Karlyn Mann said. “I know she was nervous, but you couldn’t tell.” 

The game marked an end to O’Brien’s high-school basketball career, but she hopes to play in college.
