|Perkiomen School junior Nicole Pupillo|
In her spare time, Nicole Pupillo is a competitive horseback rider — having taken a first-place in English Grooming and Showmanship two years ago in the state 4-H show.
During the winter months, however, the Perkiomen School junior navigates the area girls basketball courts with a thoroughbred-like talent.
Pupillo, a 5-foot-5 guard who ranks second in the area in scoring at 18.7 points per game, heads into today’s game against Kimberton Waldorf five points shy of becoming the first 1,000-point career scorer in Panthers history.
“I’m just really glad I can do it for the Perkiomen community,” Pupillo said. “They’ve been there for me since my freshman year and have helped me become the player I am.”
A Gilbertsville resident, Pupillo averaged 18.6 points per game as a freshman, and finished tied for the area lead with 49 3-pointers.
