HEBRON, Maine – Hebron Academy Athletic Director Leslie Guenther is pleased to announce that members of the varsity boys’ basketball team Xavier Bernard ’12 and Shaquille Cezont-Holmes ’13 have earned Class C All-New England honors.

Bernard, a postgraduate from St. Albans, NY, was selected to the Class C All-New England Second Team, while junior Cezont-Holmes of Quebec, Canada, was awarded Honorable Mention. Bernard, a forward, anchored Hebron’s offensive effort, leading the team in scoring and steals with five per game; he averaged 18 points per game and 4 rebounds. Cezont-Holmes, a guard, averaged 15 points per game and put forth his best efforts against Hyde ME; scoring 37 points, and against Kents Hill, posting 32 points.

Head Coach Bill Flynn notes of his talented players, “This was a groundbreaking season for us. The efforts of Shaq and Xavier really set the tone for our team and brought Hebron basketball to a whole new level. The Academy is incredibly proud of this burgeoning program and our boys.”

The Hebron Academy varsity boys’ basketball team was runner-up in the 2012 New England Class C championship against Hyde School (CT) and made school history with its NEPSAC playoff run, upsetting Pingree School (MA) and Providence (RI) Country Day School to reach the Class C Finals.
