SHAC names All-Conference boys team, six Adams Countians recognized

With a vote of the league’s coaches, the Southern Hills Athletic Conference has named its All-Conference Boys Team for the 2015-16 basketball season. There were 18 deserving young men named to the All-Conference squad with approximately one-third of those coming from Adams County schools, three from Peebles, two from North Adams, and one from Manchester.

The Peebles Indians finished second in the SHAC big school division and were able to get three players on the All-Conference squad, led by senior Scout Kremin. The high-flying Kremin averaged 9.1 points a game for the Indians, with a high game of 15. He also hauled down 8.7 rebounds a game and shot 61.3% from the field.

Also named to the squad from the Indians were junior forward Camron Gordley and sophomore guard Tanner Arey. Gordley led the 2015-16 Peebles team in scoring at an 18.5 clip per game, while also averaging 7.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists, Gordley, who is an offensive threat from anywhere on the court, shot 51.2% from the field, and 32.1% from three-point range.

Despite battling injuries at the beginning and end of the season, Arey still managed to put up 15.3 points a game, while manning the point guard position for the 16-7 Indians. The sophomore guard also dished out 4.1 assists per contest, shot 48.8% from the field, 75.4% from the charity stripe, and 40.5% from beyond the three-point line.

The North Adams Green Devils were champions of the small school division of the SHAC with a 10-3 conference mark, led by two players who earned All-SHAC recognition, senior big man Trey Meade and junior point guard Isaiah Anderson.

Meade was hands down one of the most deserving members of the All-SHAC team after an outstanding senior season that saw him put up some very impressive numbers, beginning with a double-double average of 16.6 points and 10.2 rebounds a game. The 6’6” senior also had 16 double-double performances during the season for the Devils, who finished with an overall record of 16-8. Meade shot 62.7% from the field and 78.4% from the free throw line in his final year in the green and gold.

Though up and down at times, Anderson, the Devils’ point guard, still put up the numbers worthy of a selection to the All-SHAC team. Isaiah averaged 12.3 points a game and 2.5 assists while running the North Adams offense. As a point guard should, Anderson hit 71.6% of his free throws on the season.

The final representative of Adams County on the 2015-16 All-SHAC squad was Manchester senior Sean Frost. Frost, who again played numerous positions for the Hounds depending on what was needed, averaged 11.1 points per game, 6.4 rebounds, and 2 steals for the Hounds who finished the year at 7-15.

The champions of the SHAC big school division were the Lynchburg Clay Mustangs, who recently captured a Division III district championship. The Mustangs accomplished something that is very rare, they placed all five of their starters on the All-SHAC team: seniors Zach Blankenship and Devin Pierson, juniors River Mullins and Joe Giordano, and sophomore Eric McLaughlin. The Mustangs finished with a 12-1 record in the SHAC, their only loss coming to North Adams, which they avenged later in a sectional final game.

The remainder of the 2015-16 Boys All-SHAC team consists of Whiteoak senior Brandon Ashbaugh, Eastern Brown seniors Chrles Bellamy and Marcus Day, Fayetteville’s Max Iles, Max Lanham, and Cole Schaefer, and Fairfield senior Ethan Putnam. West Union and Ripley had no players named to the squad.

All of the All-Conference players plus the first and second place teams in each division will be honored at the SHAC Winter Sports Awards on March 13 at 2:30 p.m. at North Adams High School.
