In all, Holmes, an All-CCC South pick, averaged 14 points and four rebounds per game. After joining the team a few games into the season, as each game passed it became more and more clear that Rodriguez had a stellar ability to put the ball in the basket. The versatile junior posted multiple 15 point or higher games, including going for 21 on the road against East Hartford. But he saved his best performance for the state tournament. Rodriguez tallied exactly half of the Lancers’ 62 point output in their first-round Division L win in Groton over Fitch. He averaged 22 points per game in the tournament. For the year, Rodriguez averaged 15 points and five rebounds. Siemiatkoski also had a knack

for coming up with his biggest performances in some of the Rams biggest affairs. He paced Central in scoring in both showdowns with Bristol Eastern — once leading the Rams past their archrival thanks to a 15-point output. He also came up with 15 points in a crucial win over South Windsor that, at the time, kept the Rams hopes of qualifying for the postseason alive, as well scoring 17 in the previous game in a come-from-behind victory over Middletown. Siemiatkoski averaged 12 points and three steals per game and shot 41 percent from 3-point land for the year. He was an All-CCC South selection. His backcourt mate blossomed into a quality all-around point

guard. Lewis led the Rams in scoring in two of the final three games of the season. While he put up nine points a game over the course of the winter, maybe more importantly he dished out 4.2 assists each time out. Sterner averaged 13.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game for Terryville. He put up those numbers while also serving as the Kangaroos best defender, leading the young team on both ends of the floor. His season was highlighted by a career-high 27-point night

against Northwestern. Brooks was a force in the middle for the Lancers. In a game against Plainville, the senior blocked six shots (changing countless others), grabbed 14 rebounds and chipped in with 12 points. He averaged 10 rebounds per game for the year to go along with eight points. Shaw fought through a midseason injury that kept him out five games to play a significant role in the Falcons’ memorable season. The senior guard paced St. Paul with 14

points in his final high school game. It was far from his season-high. Shaw posted an area-best 37 points against Ansonia. He averaged 11.5 points per game. Gonzalez posted an impressive 11 double-doubles over the winter and had a total of 15 double-digit rebounding games, corralling as many as 17 in a single contest. He fell just shy of averaging a doubledouble for the season. He finished his junior campaign averaging 10 points, nine rebounds, 2.3 assists and three steals a game.
