Charlie Rounaghi broke the school record for assists and steals during the LBHS team’s winningest season since 1962, a record of 26 wins and four losses. He also earned the season’s coach’s award and was co-MVP of the league.
Owen McMurray was voted most valuable defensive player by his teammates. Both were selected as first team all-league players.
At the recent team banquet, Coach Bret Fleming said, “I’ve known Owen and Charlie since they were little third graders taking my summer clinic. They couldn’t get enough basketball. These two guys have each dedicated hundreds of hours to practicing and perfecting their skills. This team is for those who are fully committed to working hard and putting in the time and effort. The all-star selection is a great way for these boys to cap off their high school careers. I’m extremely proud of them.”
