Jeremiah Kendall (F/C) – Crosby-Waterbury Boys Basketball

2016 ended with a rather large thud for the Bulldogs as Crosby lost game number one of the season by 37 points to East Hartford on December 30. 2017, however, began with a bang for Crosby as it overcame Waterbury Career in a WILD 125-123 triple overtime thriller (Palladino, Rep-Am Sports). Senior Jeremiah Kendall paced the Bulldogs with an incredible 49 points, Wednesday.

Tremont Waters (G) – Notre Dame-West Haven Basketball

Before Waters, a senior transfer from South Kent and Georgetown University commit, moved on to Notre Dame, the Green Knights would not have been thought of as a top team in Connecticut. ND-West Haven is currently No. 2 in the Top 10 poll behind Hillhouse-New Haven, but they are garnering more and more attention by the day. Tremont scored 28 points on the road at a sold out gym at Hamden High School in Notre Dame’s 85-66 romp of the Green Dragons. This performance followed Tuesday night’s Tremont Waters triple-double vs. Xavier-Middletown (26 points, 10 steals, 10 assists).

Cory Muckle (G) – Westbrook Boys Basketball

The senior 6’4” guard decimated Old Saybrook, Thursday, scoring 39 points in an 82-70 victory.

Janessa Gonzalez (G) – St. Paul Catholic-Bristol Girls Basketball

Freshman guard Janessa Gonzalez helped the Falcons remain unbeaten Friday by putting up 21 points and 10 rebounds in a 55-46 clipping of Seymour. St. Paul is 70 in 2016-2017.

Zachary Polo (F) – Conard-West Hartford Ice Hockey

The senior collected two monster goals and an assist as Conard knocked off EO Smith/Tolland, 5-4 in overtime, Wednesday (Conyers, Courant). Polo’s game-winning goal with 27.7 seconds left in overtime Wednesday allowed the Chieftains to improve to 2-2.  His other goal, a power play tally, ignited a third period comeback after Conard had faced a two goal deficit.

Kevin Moriarty (F) – West Haven Ice Hockey

He’s a freshman! Kevin Moriarty scored a natural hat-trick Wednesday night in a 3-0 disposal of Simsbury.
