The Eagle-Tribune taps off its winter all-stars today with the boys basketball, girls basketball and wrestling teams.
The girls MVP legitimately could have been any of four girls. Central's BC-bound All-American Katie Zenevitch was named our Player of the Decade before a monster senior year.
Andover junior Natalie Gomez-Martinez is arguably the slickest point guard in area history.
Methuen's Rashidat Agboola earned a scholarship to BU and averaged an outrageous 24.9 points a game. But the nod went to super sophomore Nicole Boudreau of Andover, owner of one of the prettiest jump shots in the country.
When the spotlight shined brightest, Boudreau played her best ball for the Division 1 state champs.
The boys MVP? With all due respect to some fine players, it was no contest.
When he hit his stride midseason, Central's 6-11 Carson Desrosiers was a man among boys.
He may have had his best game in the state final when he willed the Raiders to the title.
It was another terrific year on the mats, with Haverhill's Isaiah Williams earning MVP honors for repeating as NE champ and taking second at Senior Nationals.
