He scored 10 points in the win.

Cook, who is a three-sport star at the Linwood school, was greeted by Castaldi, family, and friends on the court.

The senior has had a tremendous career on the basketball floor, football field, and baseball diamond.  He was a huge part of the football team's 14-0 season, which ended with a State Championship as a standout on both offense and defense. On the baseball team, he has been one of the team's top pitchers and outfielders and will be a part of the Mustangs baseball team again this spring.

Cook will go down as one of the most accomplished three-sport athletes in Mainland history and is heading to the University of New Hampshire to play football in the fall.
