Boys’ Basketball Earns Bevy of Honors at County Banquet

April 15, 2011

The boys at Bridgehampton on February 12th

At the annual Suffolk County Boys Basketball Banquet five Bears were honored for their contributions on and off the court this season.  Forrest Hull was named to the All-Academic team for League VIII while Tim Pandolfi, Farqu Taylor, Richie Armand and Marco Masakayan were honored for making the All-League team.  Additionally Pandolfi received plaques for earning a spot on the All-Conference and All-County teams.  Pandolfi is our 1st boys basketball All-County recipient since Jon Marvin in 1998, an impressive accomplishment as only 11 are chosen from a pool of 61 small school All-League recipients from leagues V through VIII.

Aside from these accomplishments, two Bears were additionally given special awards for their performance this season.  Firstly Richie Armand received the 1st annual Matt Howard Award, an honor given to a player who exemplifies what it means to be a consummate teammate.  It is an award that recognizes the play of unsung heroes who take charges, set screens, guard the other team’s best defender, dive for loose balls and do whatever it takes to help the team win.  Armand, whose defense, ball-handling and hustle powered the Bears this season, was League VIII’s very deserving recipient.  Next, Tim Pandolfi was given the Jim Smith Memorial Award honoring the leading scorer in Suffolk County.  Pandolfi’s 27.3 points per game average not only led the county by Long Island catalyzed the blue and white offense on a nightly basis.
