While Ava Gugliuzza, a Nelson Ridge girls basketball player, may have been much younger than her Athlete of the Month competitors, that did not stop her from rising to the top of the December competition.

It should come as no surprise. Even back in kindergarten, Gugliuzza told The New Lenox Patriot during a November interview, she played against the likes of boys and second-graders, and it does not seem like this has slowed down her efforts to become a rising basketball star.
