North Salem senior Alina DiMella was a team captain and guard on the varsity basketball team. She also serves as a captain on the softball team.
How old were you when you started playing basketball and how did you get started?
I started playing basketball in third grade through the rec program. I got started because I wanted to play basketball. My mom played in college, so she was excited to coach, and my older brother was already involved in the rec program.
What is your favorite part about being a part of the girls basketball team at North Salem?
All the memories that I’ve made with my teammates over the years such as the bus rides home after a big win and the pre-drill rituals. I also have loved making friends with some people who I might not have ever gotten to know without basketball.
