Shane Douglas, 2012-13 and 2013-14 All Valley Captain
0-13 and 0-17. That was the Keene record near the end of the 2012-13 season and the Westport record in 2011-12. Since, both squads have been piloted by their respective coaches into the Section VII/Class D championship picture, with both teams challenging Moriah (Keene in the semifinals, Westport in the championship game). Both are poised for continued success.
Senior Shane Douglas returns to his role as All Valley team captain after leading the Patriots to the Section VII/Class B finals a year after winning the Class C crown and coming close to defeating the eventual state champs in Lake George. Douglas again led the Valley in scoring with a 13.85 average while hitting 26 three-pointers and 49 from the free throw line.
After a slow start, the Warrior senior finished second in the Valley in scoring with a 13.37 average. He was also big from the free throw line, connecting there 50 times.
The Eagles senior forward averaged 11.38 per game for the Eagles while connecting on a Valley-best 58 shots from the free throw line.
The senior forward was the fourth-leading scorer in the Valley with a 12.6 average, while leading all with 110 field goals on the season.
The junior was the leading scorer for the Beavers and third leading in the Valley with a 14 point-per-game average. Venner also converted on 46 free throws this season.
