Last Friday the Yankee Small College Conference announced its All-Conference First and Second teams.
The teams are generated by all of the head coaches, who each nominate up to four players per team from their squads. The players who are nominated are then ranked in a voting process by the coaches. Coaches cannot vote for their players. After all of the votes are cast, the top five vote receivers are named to the First Team, as the second five are named to the Second Team. The top vote receivers are named Player of the Year.
The sole SeaWolf to receive enough votes to earn YSCC All-Conference First Team on either squad was Abigail Ramirez. Ramirez joined New Hampshire Technical Institute’s Riselly Deoleo, University of Maine-Augusta’s Caitlin LaFountain and Dominique Lewis, and the Community College of Central Maine’s Brooke Reynolds.
Ramirez ended the season averaging 11.3 points per game over 26 games played.
SeaWolf freshman center Amanda Brett was voted onto the All-Conference Second Team, joining CMCC’s Natalie Thurber and Kristina Blais, NHTI’s Michaella Biron and UMA’s Carmen Bragg. Brett averaged 10.5 points per game over the course of playing in 28 games.
On the men’s side of the court, SeaWolves Dylan Silvestri and Ryan Cloutier, the “Pelham Connection,” earned All-Conference Second Team standing, joining Vermont Tech’s Cameron Carter and Daniel Gill and University of Maine-Machias’s Darius Clark.
Cloutier maintained a 30 percent 3-point shooting average, draining 44 of 145 shots launched, while averaging 13.1 points per game throughout 28 games played. SeaWolf teammate Dylan Silvestri, who is the sole player leaving the program, grabbed 275 rebounds while averaging 15.2 points per game on a 55.0 shooting percentage over 27 games.
The Beacon would like to extend hearty congratulations to all four players. We wish all of you the best in your academic pursuits for the remainder of the semester and look forward to seeing the returning SeaWolves on the court next season.
