Beth Felix is off to a blistering start this winter, picking up where she left off after averaging 20.6 points per game last season as a junior to earn League VII MVP honors.
The senior sharpshooter features prominently on the early season girls’ basketball leaderboards, averaging 23.5 points per game to lead all private school players on the Long Island. That mark is also the second-highest mark in Suffolk County and 5th overall on the island.
She has also knocked down 15 three-pointers in four games this season, the second-most tallies on Long Island behind Copiague’s Lanyah Ford. What makes these marks even more impressive is that she has accomplished them in limited time, sitting out large chunks of the second half in several blowouts and missing completely two of the Bears’ first six games.
The senior currently has the Bears tied atop the PSAA East standings with Portledge at 4-1. The girls return to action on Jan. 4 in a home scrimmage with Port Jeff.
