Giacomo Brancato (G) – Fairfield Warde Boys Basketball

Brancato enjoyed a much-deserved 19th birthday gift when his 15 points pushed him over the 1,000-point career milestone.  The 5’11” senior guard and his teammates bested New Canaan, 68-46. Brancato overcame cancer (Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma) last year and even played through his illness.  He spoke to WTNH’s John Pierson about joining the 1,000-point club, Tuesday.  Brancato scored 11 points in a Warde’s 70-56 win over Danbury, Friday. 11-1 Warde won twice this week after dropping its first game to Wilton on January 19.

Kerson Etienne (G) – Holy Cross-Waterbury Boys Basketball

The junior, 5’8” guard led Holy Cross to a 13-point fourth quarter comeback, Friday.  It was a 77-72 win over Crosby, as Etienne poured in 29 points. Holy Cross (11-1) has won seven consecutive games since losing to three-time defending state champion Sacred Heart-Waterbury on January 3.  (Palladino, Rep-Am Sports).

Jeff Stockmal (G) – Shelton Boys Basketball

The 6’3” senior guard, fresh off of joining the 1,000-point club (Vander Veer, Shelton Herald) two weeks ago, collected 34 points and 10 rebounds in a 73-57 disposal of North Haven, Thursday.

McKenna Dale (F) – EO Smith-Storrs Girls Basketball

The senior dominated with 30 points and 12 rebounds to help the Panthers hand Enfield its first loss of the season, Friday. The 2015-2016 CHSCA all-state selection (McKenna is also a state-champion swimmer) is noted for being an exceptional defender. She proved that Friday in holding fellow all-Connecticut forward Mary Baskerville to just 6 second-half points (Reilly, Courant).

Mike Gambardella (F) – North Haven Ice Hockey

The senior tallied both North Haven goals Monday night as the Indians erased Cheshire 2-1 in overtime. Gambardella’s second of the night, the game-winner, came short-handed.

Bridgid Selfors (Sprinter) – Mercy-Middletown Indoor Track and Field

Selfors, a senior, won three events, Wednesday (1000M, 1600M, and 3200M) to propel Mercy to an SCC West Indoor Track Championship (GameTimeCT.com).
