Lennard Longhorn Academic All Stars in basketball were recently named. From left: Nicholas Davis, Coach Zarko Stojakovic, Maurice Pickett II and David Flannery, all seniors, selected by Hillsborough County School District for their high GPAs and SAT scores. Davis plans to attend the University of Texas; Pickett will attend Florida A&M; and Flannery will go to USF. Also receiving Scholar Athlete awards for top Lennard athletes academic achievements at last week’s banquet was Sydney Baska, a swimmer.
Above is a rendering of the new surface, proposed for the Lennard High School basketball gym. Painting costs are estimated at $5,000 to $6,000. Boys’ basketball head coach Zarko Stojakovic said the court means a lot to the players and the school because it brings tremendous pride and more attraction to the games. The present floor is about 5 years old and renovation work will hopefully start over the summer. Anyone wishing to donate can email the coach at Zarko.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
