Watertown senior basketball player Gabe Spinelli made the Boston Globe’s All-Scholastic team, and junior Taylor Lambo made the paper’s honorable mention All-Scholastic list.
Spinelli returned to Watertown after a year at Beaver Country Day and helped the Raiders go 13-1. As point guard, he helped the Raiders win the Middlesex League Freedom Division regular season and then emerge as champions of the first ever Middlesex League Tournament. The MIAA did not run state tournaments, so the league held its own knock-out competition.
According to the Globe, Spinelli averaged 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. Along with being named All-Scholastic, he was chosen the Most Valuable Player of the Middlesex Freedom Division and a Middlesex All-Star. He played his first two years of high school basketball at WHS, including on the 2018 State Championship team.
