Serino Was Well Prepared for Dorr’s Milestone Point

Winthrop High School Athletic Director Matt Serino was ready when senior captain Maura Dorr scored the 1000th point of her high school basketball career Tuesday night.

Serino took the microphone behind the scorer’s table for the congratulatory announcement moments after Dorr scored the history-making basket in the second quarter of Winthrop’s victory over Gloucester.

Entering the game, Maura needed 12 points to reach the milestone. Serino had thought ahead and scripted his remarks in advance.

“You have to be prepared always,” said a smiling Serino, an inductee the Saugus High School Hall of Fame in recognition of his spectacular ice hockey career.

Following are AD Matt Serino’s remarks:

Good evening.

At this time we would like to recognize senior captain Maura Dorr, who has just scored her 1000th point.

Maura is the 14th player in Winthrop High School history and only the fifth girl to reach this prestigious milestone.

Maura is a three-sport, four-year varsity starter. Along with joining the basketball greats, she is also the all-time leading scorer in soccer and the third-leading scorer in girls lacrosse history.

Coach Lowe describes Maura as “a hard-working student athlete whose success in the classroom and on the court go hand in hand with her effort and talent. She exemplifies the character and values we preach in our program. Maura has helped develop our culture and has laid the blueprint for how to be a successful student-athlete for the girls basketball program and all athletes of Winthrop High School.”

Along with Maura, we would like to recognize Maura’s parents, Jill and Jerry Dorr, who are in attendance tonight. We want to thank them for all the sacrifices they have made over the last 17 years, being able to provide Maura with the opportunities to make an achievement like tonight possible.

Congratulations, Maura, on a well-deserved accomplishment.
