On Thursday evening, following the girls’ basketball PSAA Championship, senior Beth Felix was named the PSAA East Division MVP after leading the Bears to an 11-1 league record, a share of the East Division Championship, and a second consecutive tournament championship berth.
A year ago, Felix shared the MVP honors for League VII with Mattituck’s Liz Dwyer, making her the first Bear to win an MVP award in two different leagues.
This season, Felix improved on her 20.6 points per game average and 57 three-pointers from a year ago by scoring 22.3 points per game to lead all Long Island private school players (4th overall on LI) while connecting on 61 three-pointers (3rd overall on LI), despite playing in only 13 games, good enough for 4.6 threes per game, by far the highest average on LI. No other shooter averaged more than 3.5.
In a career full of memorable performances, Felix treated us to several this season as the Bears stormed into the new league including a nine 3-pointer performance vs. Martin Luther, a 36-point outburst vs. Waldorf, and clutch plays on both ends of the floor in a thrilling win over Portledge which paved the way for the Division title.
She will go down in Stony Brook lore as one of the greatest to ever wear the Blue & White.
