The Silver Lake High sports teams have plenty of talent coming back this upcoming school year, including some athletes who received league wide recognition last fall.
Each of the fall teams had Patriot League All-Star games last year and while some of them are no longer members of their respective teams due to graduation, others of them are back once again. That said, here is a look at who the returning Patriot League All-Stars are for the Silver Lake High varsity sports teams this fall.
On the girls’ side, the Lakers have a pair of Patriot League All-Stars returning: Samantha Faherty and Summer Bejarano. Both of them are seniors this year. Bejarano was the Patriot League MVP last year as well as a Boston Globe and Boston Herald All-Scholastic selection.
The Lakers lost 15 seniors to graduation at the end of last season, but they do have one of their four Patriot League All-Stars coming back: senior Toni Ierardi. She led the team with seven points last season.
The Lakers lost their only Patriot League All-Star to graduation: quarterback Ben Lofstrom.
The Lakers don’t have any returning All-Stars this season. Their lone All-Star last year, Tyler Brown, was the Patriot League MVP.
On the girls’ side,the Lakers have two returning Patriot League All-Stars. That includes senior outside back Lauren Dwyer and junior forward Shea Kelleher. Kelleher was also an All-Star in hockey as a member of the Whitman-Hanson/Silver Lake girls’ hockey co-op.
The Lakers had one Patriot League All-Star last year, and she will be back once again: senior outside hitter Abigail Grace. She has 44 kills, 169 digs, and 35 aces in 101 sets played headed into this season.
