The Connecticut High School Coaches Association (CHSCA) released their All-State boys’ basketball teams and three area players made the teams.
Matt Turkington earned Class S first-team All-State honors after leading Cromwell to the cusp of a state finals berth. The 6’4 center was the heart and soul of the team. He was a force on the inside, with unlimited shooting range from the outside. He average 11 points and five rebounds per game this past season. The senior also added a block and a steal per contest.
Turkington’s teammate Jake Regula earned second-team honors. The sharp-shooting senior scored 14 points per game and scored in double-figures in each of the team’s final twelve games. He scored a season-high 29 points in a win over Westbrook on February 24th.
Wethersfield Ryan Peterson was selected to the Class L second-team following this sensational senior season. The 6’5” shooting guard was best known for his acrobatic layups and highlight reel dunks during his four years as an Eagles. He used his smooth jumper and long frame to post 15 points, seven rebound, and three assists per game as a senior.
