BRATTLEBORO — Seven high school seniors were named to a Vermont Basketball Coaches’ Association All-Star basketball team, however the four annual North-South games will not be played this year due to COVID-19 concerns.

Twin Valley’s leading scorers, Izaak Park (15.2 points per game) and Colin McHale (13.7 points per game), each made the Divisions 3-4 boys South team. Brattleboro’s Greg Fitzgerald, who pumped in a game-high 25 points on his Senior Night, joins teammate Gabe Packard on the Divisions 1-2 boys South team.

Leland & Gray’s Matt Emerson, Twin Valley’s Sadie Boyd and Twin Valley’s Jayden Crawford also earned an All-Star roster spot.
