JOE BOWERS OF Roscoe clutches the basketball while trying not to fall onto Tri-Valley’s Owen Williams.

Tough Season
For Roscoe Boys

By Jeanne Sager
March 19, 2004 – ROSCOE

Overall Record: 5-15

League Record: 3-7, OCIAA Division VI
Top Scorers: The Blue Devils were led in scoring this year by senior Justin Bowers, who averaged 15.6 points per game, and sophomore Dan DeVantier, who averaged 10.1 points per game.
Leading assistman Vinny Carpinone added about 9.8 points each game while racking up 124 assists over the season.
The team was also lucky to have sophomore Troy Kirchner, who had 142 rebounds and a 41 percent field goal percentage while averaging 9.6 points per game.
Brenden Hendrickson was also essential to the Blue Devils’ starting line-up. The senior averaged 7.8 points per game and was 80 percent from the free-throw line. His three-point shooting was 42 percent.
“Sixth man” Rob Eggleton and junior Joe Bowers “sparked” the team as well, according to Coach Fred Ahart.
Dusty Sullivan, who came off the bench and grew during the season to become the leading scorer in some of the later games helped as well, as did Kris Mershon and Chris DeVeau.

Season Highlight: “I’d say our win over Family at Family, which is always a difficult place to play,” Ahart said.
The Blue Devils dropped two games to the Falcons in Roscoe but managed to come out on top in a game in Hancock.

Other Comments: “I think this team did play hard and they were a pleasure,” Ahart noted. “This team worked very hard and worked together.
“I enjoyed the season with these guys,” Ahart continued.
