  WESTFORD — Alyssa Caputo of Townsend and Christopher Fusco of Billerica have been selected as February’s Athletes of the Month at Nashoba Tech.

        Alyssa Caputo, daughter of Mark and Catherine Caputo, is a junior captain for the Lady Vikings who made the best of a rebuilding season for the girls basketball team and always played tough no matter the score. Alyssa is in the Culinary Arts program and is a Kick-Off Mentor, helping incoming students adjust to their new school. She also plays volleyball for Nashoba Tech and competes in motocross outside of school.

        She plans to attend college and someday become chef of her own restaurant.

        She was nominated by head coach James Creed, who wrote: “Alyssa 
battled through knee injuries all season. She has an infectious personality, which was instrumental in keeping the team together during a long season. On the court, she is the energy and toughness of the team. She was the best defender and, at 5 feet tall, one of our toughest rebounders. She also led the team in three-pointers. She makes everyone on the team feel welcomed.”

        Christopher Fusco, son of David and Jayne Fusco, is a junior 6-foot shooting guard who helped lead the Vikings to the Vocational Small School State Championship in boys basketball. Chris averaged 14 points per game for the season. He is in the Culinary Arts program and hopes to pursue a music career after graduation.

        Chris was nominated by head coach Frank Drejaj, who wrote, “Chris loves February. We had seven games in the month, and he tallied 117 total points, averaging 16.7 points per game, with three games over 20 points. He also connected on 24 of 28 free throws, an amazing 85 percent average. Chris’ favorite stat of the month has to be his 18 three-pointers. And the team managed a 6-1 record for the month.”
