Alumnus Zachary White '06 Leads Team to Victory in 2017 NWBU Championship

Jul 25 2017

Congratulations to alumnus Zachary White ’06 on leading the Penguin Blues to victory in the 2017 NWBU Championship in Australia! White is a high scorer for the team and sealed the championship for the Blues with a dunk in the final seconds of the game. (The North West Basketball Union began in the 1950s on the North West Coast and West Coast of Tasmania. The league has since expanded and is highly regarded throughout Australia.)

White was part of Park’s 2006 championship-winning boys’ basketball team. Though he’s been playing for the Blues for the past five years, he returns to Park each winter as an Assistant Coach for Boys' Varsity Basketball.

"Zac has such a unique personality and is obviously one of the many successes that have come through our program, but one of the things that makes his path amazing is the ways in which he has sacrificed to give back to our students year after year as a coach," says Dia Clark '06, Director of Athletics for the Boys' Program. "It's great to see him recognized for his lifelong grind."
