Boys Basketball Team Celebrates Graduating Seniors

Graduating seniors and varsity boys basketball team members Nick Acerenza, Jeremiah Bozzo, Adam Duplessis, Mike Krall, Danny Suchopar and Andrew Wright were recognized by proud family members, community members and coach Tim Trava prior to a game on Feb. 11 for their leadership and dedication throughout the season.

The evening began with an introduction of the seniors, the presentation of a long stemmed rose to each of the players’ mothers, and the recognition of their supportive family members. Coach Trava and assistant coaches Matt Buderman and Keith Cussmano spoke to the supportive crowd about how much progress the team had made this season and the bright future for the program because of the seniors’ efforts. Trava wished his seniors continued success and reminded them that they would always be part of the Connetquot T-Bird nation.

Following the recognitions was a special game against visiting Half Hollow Hills High School East, which saw Connetquot off to a quick lead. Unfortunately, the lead was surpassed by HHHE, who demonstrated the skills and teamwork that earned them the top standing position in League II. HHHE ultimately took home an 87-56 win over the T-Birds.

Mike Krall led Connetquot with 13 points, including four three-point baskets. Andrew Wright and Jeremiah Bozzo contributed with 11 points each.
