Julianne Puente ’91 and Margaret Scarcella ’84

Julianne’s first visited Hackley at the invitation of Margaret Scarcella ’84, who as a high school student coached Julianne’s 5th grade basketball team back home.

Margaret invited Julianne to come watch her play the day she scored her 2000th point, an accomplishment that to this day places Margaret near the top of the roster of all time top scorers in Hackley history. Margaret’s record (2135) was achieved in just her four years at Hackley, and before the three point line was introduced, making her record all the more impressive.

Margaret and Julianne went on to coach Hackley Varsity Softball together.
