Last week, Alex Frattaroli notched the 1,000th point of his prolific and productive career. This week, Lebanon Catholic’s senior forward got a start on his second thousand.
On January 8, during a home game against rival Annville-Cleona, Frattaroli reached the career milestone with a three-pointer in the fourth that gave him 22 points for the game. His 22 were also a game-high and helped the Beavers turn back the Little Dutchmen 69-47.
But Frattaroli wasn’t content to stop there.
On Tuesday in Fredericksburg, Frattaroli pumped in 19 points, but it wasn’t enough as his Beavers fell to Northern Lebanon in a backyard scrap. Then on Friday, in the midst of a 70-57 triumph over Elco, Frattaroli went for 14 points in the paint.
A bit undersized for his inside position, Frattaroli gets the job done against taller defenders with a quick first step, tenacity and smarts. A guard growing up, Frattaroli was moved inside later in his career and the change has paid huge dividends for he and the Lebanon Catholic boys’ basketball team.
