PHOTOS: A gathering of some all-region boys basketball selections

Pictures were taken in the Wakefield High School gym

Some of the players chosen 6D North Region first- and-second-team in boys high-school basketball for the 2023-24 season gathered recently at Arlington’s Wakefield High School for a second-annual group photo taken by Arlington resident Mark Weiser.

The selections included a number of players from the GazetteLeader’s coverage areas. The event was arranged by Weiser and Wakefield High boys head basketball coach Tony Bentley.

The local players in the photo from Wakefield are forwards Carlton Young (first team) and Miles Hancock (second team). From Marshall High School is guard/forward Jason Penn (first) and from Madison High is guard Steven Cruz (second).

Also in the photo are region Player of the Year Jordan Scott of South Lakes High, Brian Kennedy of South Lakes (first), Herndon High’s Toby Haire (second), Centreville High’s Jaxson Davis (first) and Westfield’s Jemon Price (first).

All-region players who did not attend the photo shoot were McLean High’s Isaac Bell (first), Yorktown High’s Andrew Maria (first), Oakton High’s Noah Toole (second), Langley High’s Ryan Bradshaw (second), Chantilly High’s Tyler Swindell (second), McLean’s Jeremy Fuchs (second) and South Lakes’ Sol Vita (second).

The region co-Coaches of the Year, both in the photo, are Bentley and Mike Desmond of South Lakes.

Desmond and Scott led South Lakes to Concorde District, region and Class 6 state championships this past season. Bentley and Young guided Wakefield to Liberty District championships and the Warriors reached the region-tourney semifinals.

Scott and Young were chosen district Players of the Year.

He was included in the first such all-region group photo taken by Mark Weiser and published by the GazetteLeader and its Website.
