Wall Freshman Emily Tvrdik Captures Final Player of the Week Award
Emily Tvrdik is one of several players who have Wall Coach Colleen Wisher believing the future is very bright for the Crimson Knights basketball program. The freshman forward led Wall to three consecutive victories and the Pod "D" title last week and was voted the Burger 25 Player of the Week for the sixth and final week of the season.
Tvrdik finished second on the team in scoring (12ppg) behind fellow freshman Shayne Eldridge but turned in some of her strongest performances during the Shore Conference Postseason. First came a 23-point, 5-rebound effort in a rout of Manalapan and she followed that up with 19 points and 19 rebounds in a win over a solid Point Pleasant Beach team. In the pod final against Mater Dei Tvrdik came up with 15 points and 5 rebounds as Wall prevailed 51-42.
Emily received a whopping 40% of the vote as the Crimson Knight faithful rallied behind her. Manchester's Destiny Adams and Donovan Catholic's Gabriella Ross were second and third in the fan voting. For her efforts, Tvrdik receives a $25 gift card from Burger 25 of Toms River.
