Adou Thiero and Markus Frank formed a dynamic duo for Quaker Valley, which celebrated the most successful boys basketball season in school history this winter.
The two Quakers and their coach added another reason to celebrate Friday.
Thiero and Frank each earned first-team all-state honors in a statewide vote of sportswriters, and Mike Mastroianni was named coach of the year in Class 4A after the Quakers went 27-1.
Thiero averaged 23.3 points and 10.3 rebounds, and Frank averaged 28.1 and 10. Quaker Valley won the WPIAL title and finished as the state runner-up, losing to Neumann-Goretti in the PIAA finals.
Lincoln Park teammates Brandin Cummings and Meleek Thomas also earned all-state recognition. Cummings was named to the second team and Thomas earned a spot on the third.
Neumann-Goretti sophomore Robert Wright III earned player of the year honors after leading the Saints to the team’s ninth state title. Wright averaged 19.2 points as the leading scorer in the Philadelphia Catholic League.
