Boys Basketball Squad Continued to Build this Season

After getting off to a rather slow start this season, the Londonderry High School Boys’ Basketball team was able to climb back into the Division I standing and make it into the State Championship.
The Lancers finished in the middle of the division pack this year, at 9-9, a three-win improvement over last year’s 6-12 finish.
They entered this year’s playoff tournament as the #11 seed and were quickly knocked out by Windham High School in the first round.
Senior Center, Ty Miles, was the team’s high scorer this year, after sitting out his entire junior year due to an injury.
Miles tallied 13.8 points per game and played in all 18 contests. He also led in rebounds, averaging 10.4, 4.4 on offense and 5.9 on defense.
Junior guard, Mason Paquette, played in 17-games, averaging 12.5 points and averaging 5.8 rebounds per game.
Both Miles and Paquette received Honorable Mention by the New Hampshire Basketball Coaches Organization at the end of the season.
Senior forward, Ryan Williams, put up 11.1 points per game, with 3.3 rebounds per game.
Head coach, Jaryd Piecush, was positive about the team’s chances moving forward.
Piecush commented, “Overall it was a successful season for the boys, improving on last years’ record by going 9-9. We had a big win at Keene, at Windham (their only home loss), and on senior night against Memorial. We competed in just about every game, and had the lead in the fourth quarter against some good teams but just couldn’t hold on. The boys were very close this year so it will be tough replacing the seniors, but the group that is coming back are already talking about how they can make a big impact next year.”
He added, “We graduate six seniors and are slated to return nine players next year.”
