Tori Faieta had some superlative achievements during her basketball career at St. Mary’s High School: the 1,000-point club, All-Scholastic and Item honors, and the ultimate one, a state championship.

Faieta added another memorable moment to her basketball resume as the 6-foot-2-inch sophomore center scored 14 points in helping the Stonehill College women’s team defeat No.-1 ranked Bentley, 73-66, Saturday afternoon before a standing room only crowd at Merkert Gymnasium on the Stonehill campus.

Tori’s father Jim, mother Donna, and sister Taylor, a junior at St. Mary’s, were part of the capacity crowd that cheered on the Lady Skyhawks as they handed Bentley its first loss of the season. Stonehill students enveloped the players on the court after one of the biggest wins in the program’s history.

“It’s surreal, it’s unbelievable but all our hard work paid off,” said Tori outside the victorious Stonehill locker room.

Tori knew that the 24-0 Bentley team had taken over the No. 1 spot in the USA Today Division 2 poll.
