CAPAC — Capac hoop standouts Trevor Boers and Andrew Sams were recognized for their outstanding seasons, earning an appearance on the honorable mention portion of the Detroit News Class C All-State basketball squad which was announced recently.

Boers wound up with 406 points in 24 games, an average of 16.9 points per contest, during the 2017-18 campaign.

That placed him first on the Capac squad and second out of those who attained Tri-City Times All-Area first team status.

The 6-8 junior forward also grabbed 294 rebounds, blocked a school record-setting 101 shots, handed off 49 assists and supplied 38 steals.

Sams amassed 331 points in 24 contests, an average of 13.8 points per game, this winter.

The 6-0 senior guard also handed off 104 assists, registered 85 rebounds and collected 74 steals.

Sams capped his fourth season at the varsity level as an All-Blue Water Area Conference first team choice and All-Blue Water Area Conference Defensive Team pick.

Capac ended the 2017-18 campaign with a Class C district title, a 17-7 overall mark and a 9-5 Blue Water Area Conference showing (good enough for a share of third with Almont).
