Tri-Valley Central School
Overall Record: 15-8
League Record: 5-3 OCIAA Division IV
Team Leaders: Kyle Humphrey led Section IX in scoring this year, averaging 30.6 points per game and grabbing 11.8 rebounds each time he went out on the court.
One of three seniors on the Bears team this year, Humphrey set school records as he finished his career with 1,317 total points and 200 three-pointers. He posted 704 points this season alone, including 80 three-point shots.
Also integral in the Bears success this year were seniors Danny Weisberg and Brenton Smith and juniors J.R. Rennison, Zac Bright, Eli Felder and Martin Henry-Lester.
Season Highlight: According to Coach Jason Semo, the boys were on a constant quest to improve throughout the season, making one particular highlight too difficult to choose.
We got stronger as the season went along, he said. Each practice they worked a little bit harder, and each game meant a little bit more to them.
Overall, Semo continued, I was really happy with how the season progressed.
The team went to West Point this year for sectional play, which Semo said was a major accomplishment made possible by the hard work the boys put in all year.
Other comments: The team will be losing three players to graduation this year, but returning will be several juniors and sophomores who worked hard all season to improve.
We had a pretty young team this year, Semo noted. Although we lose some key seniors, we have a lot of good players returning.
We look forward to next season.
