NORTH STONINGTON — Wheeler High basketball player Bowen Baker earned honorable mention honors in ECC Division IV this season.

Baker averaged 13.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists for the Lions, who went 6-16 in 2018-19.

“He came a long way as a basketball player,” Wheeler coach Neal Cobleigh said. “We asked him to do an awful lot. He was our point guard, but we asked him to rebound and he needed to take the lead on defense. He was also our vocal leader.

“He did a little bit of everything for us. He was the guy we couldn’t take of the court. He had a real good year.”

Seth Jones was the team’s scholar athlete, and Nolan Arruda was the sportsmanship award winner.
