On Wednesday, May 2nd, members of the Iona College men’s and women’s basketball teams visited Albert Leonard Middle School in New Rochelle, NY to take part in the school’s annual Career Day. Lauren DeFalco (East Brunswick, NJ), Polina Hadjiyankova (Sofia, Bulgaria), Anna McLean (Freeport, NY), and Jen Ritz (Yorktown, NY), represented the women’s basketball team. Devon Clarke (Windsor, CT), Kevin Hassett (Scottsdale, AZ), and Milan Prodanovic (Queens, NY) of men’s basketball joined the women's squad.

The Iona Gaels spoke to an auditorium of energetic seventh-graders about the importance of education and the lessons to be learned from athletic participation. The youngsters were very attentive as they listened to what the Gaels had to tell and teach them about discipline, hard work, and organization.

After a series of questions were asked about the collegiate experience, players distributed Iona Basketball t-shirts and miniature basketballs; much to the delight of the young audience!
