McCosker returns at point for Pacers

BRATTLEBORO — First-year head coach Carl Anderson is taking over a Hinsdale varsity boys basketball team that went 6-12 last season.

The Pacers return three starters, including Ryan Boggio, Peter McCosker and Caleb Steever.

"These three should have a good year," said Anderson, who was the team's assistant coach last season. "Caleb and Ryan are big kids, at 6-2 and 6-3, and can play anywhere on the floor. Both can play in the paint and behind the arc. McCosker will be running the point again this year."

The 6-2 floor general earned Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors last winter after going off for 24 points and a dozen rebounds during a game against Nute. He also finished with a double-double in a Keene Holiday Tournament contest.

Also returning for Hinsdale are Dan Roberts, Ryen LeClaire, Carter Finnell and Nate O'Melia.

"Dan and Ryen are hardworking, scrappy kids that are not afraid to go after the loose balls and fight for rebounds," noted coach Anderson. "Nate is another inside-outside guy. Carter has worked on his game and will give the Pacers some quality minutes this year."

New to the Pacers are former JV standouts Dylan Harden and Ryan Lee, with the former being a slasher and the latter currently working on his mid-range game. Garrett Carrier and Greg Howard round out the squad.

The Pacers will debut at Colebrook on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
