Concord — Player-of-the-year awards have been collecting around Lebanon High School like so much snow over the past couple of days.

Nate Gariepy added to the Raiders’ end-of-season award haul on Tuesday when the New Hampshire High School Hockey Coaches Association named him the NHIAA Division II boys hockey player of the year. Gariepy’s honor came less than 48 hours after fellow senior Ryan Milliken received similar recognition by NHIAA Division II boys basketball coaches.

Granite State hockey coaches also bestowed D-I coach of the year honors upon Hanover’s Dick Dodds, bringing light to the 35th-year coach’s accomplishments with the Marauders this season.

Atop the Upper Valley scoring chart for most of the season, Gariepy helped the Raiders to a 10-11-0 record and a trip to the D-II quarterfinals. He finished second in area scoring with 51 points, including an Upper Valley-best 32 assists. He was also the only member of the Lebanon-Stevens roster to make the all-state D-II squad, landing on the first team.

Dodds’ Marauders charged into a top-four spot in D-I with a late-season rush, eventually falling in the quarterfinals to Bishop Guertin. Along the way, Dodds surpassed Exeter’s Jim Tufts as the all-time winningest coach in Granite State history with 487 victories.

Hanover High senior defenseman Patrick Logan was selected second-team all-state in NHIAA Division I by the New Hampshire High School Hockey Coaches Association earlier this week. Logan had 20 points and a team-high 13 assists this season. Hanover senior forward Jake Acker also received an all-state nod, making the honorable mention team. Acker finished with a team-best 13 goals and 24 points. 

Hanover and Lebanon-Stevens both had representatives on the association’s D-I girls all-state team. Hanover’s JJ Taube and Briland Laycock made the first team, while the Marauders’ Sarah MacCormick and Cate Wagner joined the Raiders’ Grace Lindsay on the second team. Hanover forward Clare Gardner and Lebanon-Stevens forward Sage Ballard received honorable mention.

Woodstock’s Webb Honored

Windsor — Woodstock junior forward Caleb Webb landed on the Vermont Basketball Coaches Association’s Dream Dozen for Divisions I and II on Tuesday.

Webb led the Wasps (6-15) in scoring at 13.76 points per game, topped by a season-best 32 points in a 71-55 loss to Fair Haven on Jan. 9.

Webb sits in 13th place among Upper Valley scorers this season.

The Dream Dozen is one of several awards handed out by the VBCA as part of its Senior All-Star Games, which are set for March 25 at Windsor High School.

Correction

Hanover High senior defenseman Patrick Logan was selected second-team all-state in NHIAA Division I boys hockey by the New Hampshire High School Hockey Coaches Association earlier this week. Logan, who had 20 points and a team-high 13 assists this season, was accidentally omitted from an earlier version of this story.
