Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Week: Hailey Frolich

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Teaneck Doghouse would like to recognize nine-year-old Hailey Frolich as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. A couple of weeks ago the Wolverines, Hailey’s Mitch Gross Basketball League (MGBL) team, were down six points going into the fourth quarter. The Wolverines applied defensive pressure, led by Hailey Frohlich’s five fourth quarter steals, and held their opponent to zero fourth quarter points while chipping away at the lead. With under a minute left in the game and the score tied, Hailey stole the ball just past half court and drove all the way to the basket to hit the game winning shot. Richard Frolich, Hailey’s father and MGBL coach told the JLNJ, “I am so proud of Hailey because she works so hard and always hustles and listens to her coaches.”
