A sophomore forward, Bailey emerged as one of the best new inside players in the Valley, finishing fifth in the area with 204 points scored, scoring a lot of points thanks to his ability to grab offensive rebounds and convert on the second chance.

The sophomore guard provided a second outside scoring presence for the Patriots, connecting on 26 three-pointers, third among Valley players. Cosgrove scored 160 points on the season while averaging 2.1 steals per game.
Venner was the leading scorer for a Keene boys program that took the court for the first time in two years, being one of only six players to hit the 200-point mark in the Valley (200 exactly). He finished fourth with 43 free throws made.
The freshman guard is one of many reasons why the Eagles have confidence in the years to come, scoring 152 points while connecting on 14 three-pointers this season. Gay hit two key shots in the Eagles sectional win v. Willsboro.
Perhaps the most pure post player in the Valley, LaPier, a junior center, scored 145 points and connected n 37 chances from the charity stripe while controlling the paint for the Lions with rebounds and blocked shots
Center, AuSable Valley
The senior Patriot was another of the more traditional post players in the Valley, scoring 122 points while proving a threat from deep with seven three-pointers. He also averaged 6.5 boards, with plenty on the offensive end.
The Eagles got rolling with the addition of Freshman Mero. He finished the season with 84 points and played point guard during a second half of the season streak that saw the team only lose twice, both to Schroon Lake.
