2016 Williston Wildcats Win Second Consecutive NEPSAC Class A Championship

The Williston Wildcats won their second consecutive NEPSAC Class A boys basketball championship defeating Phillips Exeter Academy 56-53 at Rhode Island College on Sunday. Exeter came out of the gates fast with three early 3 pointers to take an 11-4 lead. Williston fought back and trailed 27-23 at the half. Exeter kept the lead and was up 40-35 with 9:35 left on the clock. Williston took their first lead 43-42 with 7:20 to go on a Jake Ross (Florence) 3 pointer. A Ross layup put Williston up 47-44 with 5:30 remaining. On the next possession Isaiah Brooks nailed a three to give Williston a 50-44 lead, their largest of the afternoon. Exeter countered with a three pointer followed by a basket and a foul shot to tie the game at 50 all with 1:58 left. A Jake Wisniewski bucket put Williston ahead with a minute and a half remaining. With just 25 seconds on the clock Chris Hudson increased the Willliston lead to 54-50 with a key offensive rebound and put-back. Exeter then hit a long three with 7.6 remaining to cut the lead to one. Forced to foul they sent Sam Geschickter to the line where he hit both ends of the one and one to put Williston on top 56-53. A last gasp three point attempt by Exeter missed and Williston was able to celebrate their second consecutive championship.

Greens Farms Academy Boys' Basketball Claims Unprecedented Third Consecutive New England Prep School Class C  Championship.

3/9/15

The Greens Farms Academy boys varsity basketball team claimed an unprecedented third consecutive New England Prep School Class C tournament championship. In a game laced with late drama, GFA defeated the Winchedon School of Massachusetts, 64-53.  The big drama started at 10:57 remaining mark, with GFA leading by 11 points. The game's MVP, Dragon senior guard, Jim Djema went down as he twisted a knee on a drive to the basket. Most recently, in the FAA tournament quarter finals at an eerily similar point in the game, Djema was knocked out by an elbow- induced gash in his scalp. In that game, GFA saw their 16 point lead and shot at the FAA tournament title evaporate. Without Djema's senior leadership, the GFA offense imploded into a rash of fatal turnovers.  That did not happen today in the New England title game. Djema's youthful teammates showed a new level of maturity and resolve. Freshman Henry Holzinger, Sophomore Evan Roteman, Juniors Chile Larraguibel and Isaac Manton rose to the enormity of the moment.

Marcos Echevarria ’15 of St. Mark's Reaches 1000-Point Plateau

February 21, 2015

Congratulations to Marcos Echevarria ’15. With his first shot in Saturday’s boys’ varsity basketball game against St. George’s—a three-pointer barely half-a-minute into the contest—he passed the 1000-point mark on his St. Mark’s career.

Action stopped immediately, as Echevarria took congratulations from his teammates and coaches Brian Burbank ’07 and Sal Abdo ’07. Athletic Director John Levandowski then presented the Sixth Former from Peabody, MA with a special basketball commemorating the event.

Echevarria’s family wore special t-shirts for the occasion. On the front they read: “My whole life I went… 1000%... Now I’m in the 1000 point club,” while Marcos’ name was emblazoned on the sleeves. He is the tenth player in St. Mark’s basketball history to score 1000 career points.

That same day, just before the game, head coach Brian Burbank had saluted the Sixth Formers on this year’s team—Echevarria, Logan Harper, Aaron McLean, Neeraj Mahey, and Logan Lee—and each senior gave their mothers flowers and had photos taken with their parents.

The Lions went on to win the game, upping their record to 15-4, with two games remaining on the regular season schedule.
