Your Assistance Is Needed

With Men’s and Women’s College Basketball just underway, the Wave would like to feature those people who are playing in winter collegiate sports. We would like your help in submitting present players who have lived in Rockaway, Broad Channel or areas where this paper is viewed. Last year, the Wave featured Rockaway players such as Clare Droesch, who plays for Boston College, Sharif Fordham, who attended St. John’s University in Queens and Kevin Fitzgerald, who attends Boston University.

If any person would like to tell of us someone who plays for any collegian or university sport for example such as football, you can send an email to editor@rockawave.com, write to us or call us at (718) 634-4000
