FBC Defenders Alum “Kristina Clark” will graduate as Bryn Athyn College’s G.O.A.T of Women’s Basketball!

FBC Defenders Alum, Kristina Clark, will leave Bryn Athyn College as the “Greatest Of All Time” in women’s basketball. After graduating from Perth Amboy High School, Kristina decided to go to Byn Athyn College in PA to start their women’s basketball program. Instead of building on a tradition she decided that she wanted to start a legacy of her own. Little did new head coach Kayla Felty know that she had recruited a kid that would go on to set the bar extremely high. Kristina joined with fellow FBC Defenders classmate Brittany Vick and instantly made the school a powerhouse! With career stats of 1,779 points, 1,057 rebounds, 282 assists, 214 steals she will be very difficult to to replace next season! Pictured above with her parents and coach it is not a stretch to imagine Kristina returning to the school one day to see her jersey raised to the rafters as she walks proudly in the hall of fame. Congratulation Kristina! We are all extremely proud of you!

FBC Defenders Walk For The Cure In Piscataway High’s Breast Cancer Fundraiser!

GlowForTheCure2017

The FBC Defenders program joined Piscataway High as it hosted their first ever “Glow for the Cure” breast cancer walk at Piscataway High School. Players from the 16, 15s teams were in attendance while those who could not attend were joining teammates via Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook Live. The event was a 2.5 mile walk/run and featured a lot of prizes, music, and all around fun. Apparently the players decided to hold an “find Coach Stone” competition! Unfortunately for them Coach & Mrs. Stone were ahead of the pack and they did not locate then until the race was almost over. To see a few pictures and video of the program’s participation use the link below.

MADISON, N.J. (April 18, 2017) – Senior Alyssa McDonough and freshman Kendrea Williams were selected as All-Met Division III by the Met Basketball Writers Association.

McDonough was named to the First Team, while Williams garnered Second Team accolades.

McDonough was tabbed a WBCA All-American Honorable Mention while also picking up First Team All-Atlantic Region by D3Hoops.com. The Parlin, N.J. native was selected as a member of the First Team All-Atlantic Region and claimed First Team All-MAC Freedom honors for the second consecutive season. McDonough joins Shalette Brown and Kyra Dayon as the only ones in program history to be named All-Americans by the WBCA.

McDonough was second in conference-only scoring at 17.8 points per game, while also averaging 9.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 2.4 steals per game. The senior was twice named MAC Freedom Player of the Week and was two-time D3Hoops.com Team of the Week selection. On Senior Day, McDonough became the second person in program to record a triple-double, totaling 15 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists.

Williams was named D3Hoops.com Rookie of the Year, while also claiming Atlantic Region Rookie of the Year by D3Hoops, and also was named Third Team All-Atlantic Region.

A two-time MAC Freedom Player of the Week selection, the freshman guard averaged 19.8 points per game, the highest per game average since Simone Edwards averaged 23.7 points per game in 1992-93. Williams scored 30 points or more in a game on two occasions, and set a new program standard with 75 three-pointers made in a season. The rookie also tied the single game record for three-pointers in a game, as she drained seven against Catholic earlier in the year.
