Newton North's Thomas-Waheed commits to Holy Cross
By Brendan Hall
Newton North girls basketball standout Infiniti Thomas-Waheed has verbally committed to Holy Cross for the 2014-15 season, she announced earlier today on her Twitter account.
"HOLY CROSS Class of 2018! Thank you to everyone who has helped me get here!" she wrote in a tweet.
The 6-foot guard was one of the state's most dynamic on-ball defenders this past season for the Tigers, who took the Bay State Conference's Carey division title and earned a No. 2 overall seed in the MIAA Division 1 South Sectional Tournament. On the season, she averaged 17.6 points and 17.6 rebounds to earn All-Bay State honors and a spot on ESPN Boston's All-State Team. She is also the daughter of Boston College assistant men's basketball coach Akbar Waheed.
