The Classic: 

David Kelly, affectionately known as Brick, played point for St. Mark this year, and took home team MVP honours at season's end. A ferocious competitor, equally adept at stroking the three or taking it to the rim, the Lion offence revolved around Kelly all year. At the defensive end of the court, Kelly could guard multiple positions, and had a knack for drawing charges. Brick averaged 27 points per game at the Kawartha Classic, leading the Lions to a 5-0 record..


1st Team All-Stars              

2020 NIT Tournament All-Stars

Mitchell Tzambazis is the complete package.  His defence is relentless but his true talents lay just outside of the three-point line. Mitchell shooting prowess has brought an offensive tsunami to our squad. He plays without reserve and was a difference maker in winning a LOSSA Tier 2 Championship this season.   The future is looking bright for this young player and the Redhawks.

Brett Wells is a strong player in multiple ways. He is very determined and practices hard to improve his individual skill set. As well, he expects his teammates to perform at their best and is willing to hold both himself and others accountable. In addition, he is physically strong too! He loves to score ‘And one’s!’ and has even scored from both his knees (after a rebound) and from half court (on a buzzer beater) this past season. Brett led his team to a LGSSAA County Championship in 2019 and looks to challenge for EOSSAA and OFSAA in the years to come.

Zach Yahn is a one of the best Gr 10 players in Simcoe County and one of the best shooters in the province.  In addition to being a great player, Zach is a top-notch student. Zach’s work ethic and determination will have him a household name for years to come both in the classroom and on the court.

Tyriek Roberts is a dynamic two way player who displays his unrivaled passion for basketball each time he steps on the court. He is a fierce competitor and a strong leader. Offensively, he can drive the lane or shoot from the arc with ease while defensively he is up to the challenge no matter the size or skill of his opponent. His future is bright and he represents himself and his school with pride.

Jaxon  was a key contributor to the Holy Cross Hurricanes Jr. boys' basketball team in 2022-23. As a grade 9, he was able to land a starting role and helped to lead his team to the Kawartha finals and COSSA tournament. He has been a member of the Peterborough Power and Time 2 Hoop programs. He is part of the Holy Cross' athletic leadership program (SEAL) and was a graduate of St. Paul's in Peterborough. Jaxson's ability to generate offense is his biggest strength. We look forward to seeing his game continue to progress.


2nd Team NIT All-Stars              

Liam Masters is a grade 9 player who stepped into a leadership role in this tournament. The natural shooting guard took additional responsibility in the point guard position during the tournament. Liam's tenaciousness on defense forced numerous turnovers and fast break opportunities. Liam plays with the poise and confidence of a much older player. Liam will be a force on the Adam Scott team for years to come.

Brodie Reilly  is an exceptional athlete who excelled in his Grade 10 year on the Littleside Boy's Basketball Team at Trinity College School. Nominated as one of the team captains by both his teammates and coaches, Brodie always leads by example. His impressive ball-handling skills and ability to get to the hoop from anywhere on the floor make him a dominant force on the court. It comes as no surprise that his opponents recognized him as one of the all-stars of the Kawartha Classic Tournament. Congratulations, Brodie-the team is proud of you!  

Sam Kennie  is a versatile player who can shoot the 3 and take defenders off the dribble. He is a leader who works to stop anyone on the defensive end of the floor. Off the court he is a great example of a student athlete. 

Parker Beatty is a grade 10 guard that has showed over the last two years at St-Mary, a tremendous level of intensity every times he competes.  His ability to make the right choice on the court, makes him an incredible asset for the team.  He can shoot the ball accurately from just about anywhere.  He also is a talented finisher at the rim with a beautiful soft touch.  As a teammate, he excels at delivering the ball right on target at the right moment.  Parker is a positive leader, always ready to sacrifice himself for the greater good of the team.  His tremendous ball I.Q. will make him a force in his SR. high school years.

Xavier Armstrong is a talented offensive player who can score in every way.  He can push the ball up the floor in transition, break defenders down off the dribble to score both left and right and he is a tremendous shooter.  Xavier defends his position extremely well and is a strong rebounder.  Xavier is a quiet leader but works hard to improve his game in practice and his teammates follow suit.  Xavier is an outstanding student-athlete who has a great future ahead of him.
