Meet SBOL's Student Athlete - Devin LaMonica
By Joe Kelly

     For the past four years he has played hockey for the South Boston Youth Travel Mites, Squirts and Pee Wee divisions. The highlight of his hockey career was at Lake Placid, NY when his travel Squirt team captured the bronze medal and the Mayor's Cup Squirt division last year. The bronze medal coincided with his second CYO Midget League basketball championship at Gate of Heaven. He is a defenseman by trade on the ice but his personality is outgoing and he loves to take on new challenges. Our student athlete this week is Devin LaMonica who will be entering the seventh grade this fall at Gate of Heaven. He has been recognized as student of the month and the subject he likes most is math.

     Devin is the son of Paul and Cathy LaMonica and the brother of Tara, Traci, Tina and Daryle. "Devin is a very polite and caring son, he is an uncle to seven nieces and nephews! He is a good student and we are very proud of him,” said his Mom Cathy.

     He has played for the Foley Club in South Boston Little League the past four years manning a steady first base. In his younger days Devin also won first and second place trophies at the Sports Karate Circuit 2000 city championship. As his basketball coach Devin was a very good student of the game, listening and learning from coach Jimmy Higgins and I.

     One of his favorite leisure activities is playing guitar with his best friends Jacky Higgins, Leo Stapleton and Pat Ryan. His favorite band is Aerosmith and would like to meet up with Steven Tyler someday. Devin's favorite TV show is Sportscenter and he enjoys playing whiffleball with his friends. During the summer he likes hanging out down Ellis Haven fishing and sailing. If all these interests aren't enough Devin loves drawing in his spare time. He would like to travel to Florida for vacation and collect’s music CD's. His favorite part of living in South Boston is the closeness of his family and friends.  He would like to thank his parents for all they have done for him.
