Here are the Rivereast Standout Athletes of the Week for April 10-17:
Avery Hall - East Hampton High School (Baseball): Hall had three hits and drove in a pair of runs as the Bellringers defeated North Branford 10-4 on April 16. The junior was aided at the plate by senior Javier Diaz who was equally impressive, slapping a pair of hits and scoring two runs as East Hampton earned their second victory of the season.
Luke Stennett - Portland High School (Golf): Stennett shot a 1-under par (34) as the Highlanders defeated Coventry (169-197) in the team’s season-opener at the Portland Golf Course. The sophomore has picked up right where he left off a season ago when he won the Class S state championship as a freshman last spring.
Boden Landers - RHAM High School (Lacrosse): Landers scored eight goals as the Raptors crushed Rockville 18-3 on April 16th. The senior was one of four Raptors to tally multi-goals in the win as Jacob Tresser (three goals), Tim Smith (two goals), and Nick Pace (two goals) also found the back of the net more than once as the Raptors won their first game of the young season.
Skylar Gustavsen - Bacon Academy High School (Lacrosse): Gustavsen scored five goals and had four assists in the Bobcats 19-6 win over Montville on April 14. Through five games Gustavsen leads the team in points with 30, scoring 19 goals and dishing out 11 assists. In the win over Montville, Maddox Burton added five points (four goals / one assist) and Sarah Newton also tallied a handful of points (two goals / three assists).
