The Cardinal

Gianna DeLucia
For seven years, Gianna Delucia has been playing basketball. But for the last three years she has taken it more seriously. Delucia plays for a travel team, during the off season, and is always working to get better. 

Team Huddle, her travel team, meets once a week to practice. The team goes to tournaments all over the United States.

“I really like Team Huddle, the coaching staff is really cool. The girls on my team are super nice and we all work together well. I have gotten close with some of the girls on my team, since we travel all over together,” said Delucia.

Last year at a tournament in Cincinnati, the team won a National Championship. A unique aspect of Delucia’s team is that they have no plays. She believes this helps her understand the game more.  

She lives a very healthy lifestyle, by working everyday for one to two hours in the gym to be the best player she can be and eating clean and healthy.

Delucia also enjoys playing for the Lady Cardinals. Her two teams are quite different from one another. She enjoys both environments and being able to play with friends and enjoy the sport.

Delucia is not sure yet, if she would like to play basketball in college. Considering she is only a Sophomore, there is plenty of time to decide.

“If it happens, it happens,” Delucia said.
