The Greater Boston League (GBL) made its all-star basketball selections for 2021-22 last month, and Revere High School was well represented. The girls’ team had three players named to the team while the boys ended up with two.
Patriots first-year girls’ Head Coach Chris Porrazzo saw his inaugural season conclude on a high note by being chosen as league Coach of the Year by his peers. Revere took third place in the GBL with an 11-3 record in league play.
The Patriot girls finished 12-9 overall and made it to the Div. 2 playoffs, where they lost in the preliminary round to Tewksbury. Top scorer Carolina Bettero received the highest honor of all by being selected as the league’s Most Valuable Player. Bettero was joined by senior guard Skyla DeSimone and junior Elaysia Lung, who each received all-star nods. The selections are made by the league’s coaches.
On the boys’ side, senior guard Domenic Boudreau and fellow senior Jack D’Ambrosio each received all-star honors. The Patriots completed an 11-11 campaign this winter and scored their first postseason tournament victory in two decades. The season concluded with a loss at Scituate in the Div. 2 Round of 32. Boudreau dropped 16 points in a preliminary-round win at Springfield Science & Tech. D’Ambrosio came up big with 12 points and several rebounds in a regular-season ending win over Lynn English, which clinched a playoff berth.
