Six weeks after Bishop Canevin’s Dom Elliot and Kevaughn Price shared a championship court with Rochester’s Devon Hemer and JD Azulay, the four WPIAL Class A finalists are together again.
They were among six WPIAL boys basketball players who earned all-state honors Monday in a vote of sports writers.
All four earned third-team honors.
Aquinas Academy sophomore Vinnie Cugini, who reached 1,000 career points faster than anyone in WPIAL history, made the second team.
Union’s Matt Stanley earned third team.
The all-state teams for PIAA schools will be announced one classification per day this week ending with Class 6A on Saturday.
Berlin Brothersvalley point guard Elijah Sechler, who led his team to the state finals, was named the state’s player of the year for Class A.
The 5-foot-11 senior and Pitt-Johnstown recruit averaged 21 points and 5.6 assists. Berlin Brothersvalley lost in overtime to Pottsville Nativity in the PIAA finals last month.
