MVAC basketball hit hard by graduation, titles up for grabs


This year’s Wildcat team has eight new players, including sophomores Tanner Stone and Alex Shaughnessy. Stone and Jesse Shaughnessy combined for 29 points as Schroon Lake won its first game 59-34 against Willsboro.

Players Lost

Matt Filler, Noah Gath, Uriah Harvey, Matt Savarie, Ian Williams.

Players Returning

Jeff Armstrong, Bobby Rose, Jesse Shaughnessy.


Joe DeZalia, Justin Lough, Caleb Maisonville, Joe Maisonville, Eric Paradis, Alex Shaughnessy, Tanner Stone, Bryce Vallie.


With three games already in the books for Willsboro, the team has gotten an early look at what it looks like in game play. The Warriors are 0-3 after dropping games in the Alzheimer’s Awareness Tournament and then lost another meeting to Schroon Lake.

Through three games, Nick Arnold averages 16.6 points while Seth Swires and Brandon Porter have been the Warriors’ other scoring options.

Seniors Walker Lobdell and Sam Politti have seen significant playing time as well. Willsboro fields only eight players on its roster so playing time will be ample for all members.

Players Lost

Nick Ball, Brandon Bertrand, Clayton Cross, John Hubbard, Cody Sayward, Dakoda Sayward, Clay Sherman.

Players Returning

Nick Arnold, Walker Lobdell, Brandon Porter.


Jake Hubbard, Vadim Krivitcki, Jarrid McVicker, Sam Politti, Seth Swires.


The Indians won their first game of the season by a slim three points against Indian Lake/Long Lake. After a 5-9 season last year, this year’s squad has been eager and motivated to get back on the court.

No one was lost from last year’s team which means Jake Earley and his 20.5 points per game are back. Ben Brenan’s 9.5 points and 12 rebounds per return as well.

Earley, Brenan, Caleb Hayes and Seth Weaver are expected to remain as starters while Kenny Chicoski looks to grab that fifth spot. The Indians added five new players to give the team an even deeper bench.
