Souhegan’s Apple set to hit it big

An “A” student with a serious classroom load of AP and honors courses, Souhegan High’s Elizabeth Apple sped to the head of the Sabers’ basketball class on Tuesday night.

The senior, a three-year varsity role player, made her first career start for Souhegan, an accomplishment her coach Mike Heaney says couldn’t be more fitting.

“She’s a great kid who works her heart out,” said Heaney. “I’m just glad she’s getting her shot.”

The truth of the matter is there is much more to the 5-foot-3 Apple than just basketball and books.

So let’s take a few minutes and get to know her a little bit better.

We’ve seen you on the court, do you play any other sports?

“Well, I’ve played softball at school for the last three years.”

Played, does that mean you won’t be playing this spring?

“I’m not sure, but it’s about time I started thinking about college, and more importantly, how to pay for it I may need to get a job.”

Do you have any previous work experience?

“Not really, I’ve never had a ‘real’ job.”
