Galanek Powers BC High to Win

Jan Taylor - Mass Prep Stars

Boston College High School senior guard Tom Galanek '14, is looking to help his team in any way that he can this season. The unselfish senior was a key player on both ends of the floor as BC High defeated Malden Catholic, 63-62 on Tuesday night.

"This was one of our toughest games of the season so far," Galanek said after the game. "MC has a lot of talent and they definitely showed it against us."

Galanek helped his team earn a 15-point lead in the second quarter, however, the Eagles' defense was heavily tested by Malden Catholic's talented offense.

"We lost focus a few times during the game, and they took advantage of that," Galanek said. "They almost came back and beat us, so we had to play our best in the last minute of the game to secure the win."

The Eagles have some tough run of games coming up, including one against their arch rival and Red-hot Catholic Memorial on Friday night.

"We will have to play our best on Friday because Catholic Memorial is always one of our toughest opponents". Galanek said. "We also have Malden Catholic at home in two weeks."

Galanek, who also plays baseball, is looking to further his education next year and wants to major in engineering. He has applied to Villanova, UMass Amherst, Notre Dame and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
