Red Storm trio named CVAC all-stars

SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake boys basketball team had three seniors named Champlain Valley Athletic Conference all-stars after solid seasons with the Red Storm.

Kevin Morgan was named to the CVAC’s first team, Kellen Munn was a second-team pick and Yanchitis was honorable mention.

The trio combined to score 642 points for Saranac Lake this season, making up nearly 90 percent of the team’s total offense. The Red Storm scored 716 points in 15 games played.

Morgan, a point guard and three-sport varsity athlete, paced Saranac Lake in scoring this season with 255 points, which was an average of 17 points per game. He also led the team in a number of other categories, including assists (61) and steals (43).

Munn was a second-team CVAC forward who was Saranac Lake’s top rebounder with 130. He was third on the team in scoring with 193 points. He averaged nearly 13 points per game and hit nearly 50 percent of his attempts from the floor. Munn was also second on the team in assists with 25.

After missing most of the 2011-12 season with an injury, the 6-foot-6 Yanchitis came back as a senior to play dominating basketball inside the paint. He was second for the Red Storm in scoring with 194 points and was second behind Munn in rebounds with 105.

All three seniors played in Tuesday’s exceptional senior game at Seton Catholic and each finished the game scoring in double figures.

Saranac Lake was also honored with the Ray Holmes Sportsmanship Award.
