Every Wednesday, Novato Patch honors a Whiz Kid.
This week we pay tribute to Stuart Wesonga, senior center basketball player, who led his team to victory Saturday night giving the Mustangs their first Marin County Athletic League championship in 18 years.
Name: Stuart Wesonga, senior basketball-playing phenomenon
School: San Marin High School
Great Deed: Wesonga led his team in scoring 22 points, 20 rebounds and 6 blocks per game, on average. Saturday he scored 18 points which brought the victory of a league championship for the first time since 1993.
Key to Awesomeness: “Stuart is one of the best players in our county’s history and yet is the most gracious player who always credits his teammates,” says Coach Craig Pitti (who teaches economics and government at San Marin High in addition to coaching).
