WAVERLY'S WOODRING EARNS SOUTH'S LARGE SCHOOL DIVISION MVP HONORS — TWO WOLVERINES EARN SECOND-TEAM HONORS
 

WAVERLY — Six-eight Waverly senior Scott Woodring, who had a potentially historic season derailed by a knee injury last year, bounced back this season to average a double-double and earn MVP honors in the IAC South Large School Division.

Eighth-grader Joey Tomasso and junior Aiden Westbrook received second-team all-star honors for the Wolverines.

Woodring, an athletic low-post player who can handle the ball and knock down the 3-pointer, as well as dominate in the blocks, averaged 25.8 points and 14.9 rebounds per game. He also averaged 2.2 blocks and 1.4 steals per game.

Woodring shot 56.9 percent from the field, and 69 percent from the free-throw line. He also had 10 3-pointers and shot 32.3 percent from behind the 3-point arc.

Woodring averaged 32.7 points and 16.9 rebounds per game through the first seven games of the 2018-19 season before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

FIRST TEAM

Watkins Glen’s Isaac McIlroy and Owen Scholtisek headlined the first team. They are joined by Edison’s Jack Shaw, Notre Dame’s Brody Nemeir, and Newark Valley’s Donovin Beebe.

SECOND TEAM
Joey Tomasso, 8th-grader, Waverly:
Poised beyond his years, Tomasso averaged 6.5 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.7 steals per game in his first varsity campaign. He knocked down 24 3-pointers and shot 33 percent from behind the 3-point arc.

Aiden Westbrook, junior, Waverly:
Athletic and energetic, Westbrook averaged 5.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1.1 steals per game. He shot 46.5 percent from the field.

Also named to the second team were Watkins Glen’s Mitchell Pike, Max Evans, and Adam Pastore, and Notre Dame’s Adam Ward and Joe Sheehan.
