Wood attended Durgee Junior High School in Baldwinsville, New York, where he was a student in the ninth grade and also participated in athletics. A memorial service honoring her life was held the previous Sunday.

“She put in an incredible amount of effort,” Fonseca stated.
“She tried to get better every day. She was 14. She had ups and downs as a player, right? She was an amazing presence. You know, her personality was irreplaceable and she was just one of those kids. You got to have a few Avas.”
During this challenging time, Fonseca says that he and the rest of the team will do everything they can to honor her memory and shed light on the joyful times they shared with Ava.
