Valley Sports Report
THE VALLEY — Waverly sophomore Scott Woodring made an immediate impact on the hardwoods for the Wolverines, and averaged a double-double in points and rebounds in his first varsity season to earn the Valley Sports Report 2017-18 boys “Newcomer of the Winter.”
Woodring, who was the boys basketball “Newcomer of the Year,” logged double-doubles in his first two varsity games, and maintained that pace all season, averaging 14 points, and 11.7 rebounds per game, as well as 1.5 blocked shots.
Woodring has great feet, good hands, a nice touch on his jumper, and is a highly-talented big man with sky-high potential. He will be a fixture on All-Valley teams the next two years.
The remainder of the "Super 7" is as follows:
DeMario Chambers, senior, Tioga: Chambers, who transferred into the Tioga school district during his junior year, was a lock-defender for the Tigers, and always drew the task of guarding the opposition’s best offensive player. He was named the boys basketball “Defensive Player of the Year.”
Chambers was also a force on the boards, especially on the offensive glass. He averaged 9.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal per game.
Zach Vanderpool, 7th-grader, Waverly: Vanderpool rolled a 701 series in his first varsity match, and a 656 in his second on his way to being named the boys bowling 2017-18 “Newcomer of the Year.”
Vanderpool finished 10th in the IAC this season with a 197.76 average. He had a high series of 701, and a high game of 278. He finished 25th at the IAC Championships, and 26th at the Section IV, State Qualifier.
Bailey Poarch, freshman, Athens: Poarch, the 2017-18 wrestling “Newcomer of the Year,” racked up a 17-14 record in his first varsity season. He finished second at the North Section Tournament, losing in the finals to eventual fourth-place PIAA finisher Sheldon Seymour of Troy. He was sixth at Districts.
Garrett Skeens, 8th-grader, Waverly: The 8th-grade powerhouse fashioned a 22-11 season, which included a second-place finish at the IAC Championships. Skeens lost his first match at the Class B Championships, then was forced to bow out due to illness.
James Sutherlin, freshman, S-VE: Very quick, Sutherlin is smooth, and has a polished game for a freshman. He averaged 6 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals per game, and will likely be a much bigger factor for the Panthers over the next three years.
Corbin Brown, sophomore, Sayre: Long and athletic, Brown showed he can do everything this season, whether its shooting the 3, taking the ball to the bucket, hitting the glass, or getting after it defensively. He averaged 9.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game, and made 17 3-pointers on the season.
