For the first time since David Coutchie played in the fall of 1995, a Seymour Middle School boys' basketball player ended a middle-school season with a scoring average of 20 points or more.
It occurred last week when the Tiger "A" team closed its 2019 campaign with a 46-43 victory over Norwood for third place in the league tourney, ending the season with a 10-6 record.
In 16 games, eighth-grader Conner Young scored 321 points, good for a per-game average of 20.1.
Young posted double-figure point totals in all but one game.
In 1995, Coutchie averaged 24.6 points per game for a team that won the conference championship.
Tiger coach Chris Hastings said Young "worked extremely hard over the past year" to improve his game between his seventh- and eighth-grade years.
He noted that Young shot 51 percent from the field better than 40 percent from three-point range.
"Conner is very team oriented," he said. "He's one of those kids who works really hard to make the other kids around him better."
