Mount Vernon retires No. 30 jersey of Shamoya McKenziePosted: Updated:
Mount Vernon High School's Lady Knights retired the jersey of former teammate Shamoya McKenzie Friday.
She was the eighth-grader and star basketball player killed by a stray bullet on her way home from practice last year on New Year's Eve. She had just made the varsity team as an incoming freshman.
Her No. 30 jersey will never be worn again by any player at Mount Vernon High School.
"It's not a great feeling," says teammate Sanaah Hamilton. "It hurts, but I just gotta play for her and do what she would want me to do. I just play for her."
