First Team Player Biographies
Rob Alers- Central Falls
The 6-foot guard led Central Falls to a 23-1 record and the Division III championship, the Warriors' first in
22 years. He averaged 21.8 points during the regular season and improved to 28.3 during the playoffs. He 
scored 27 points in the quarterfinals, 26 in the semifinals and 32 in the championship game. "I've been 
honored to have Rob as part of the program for four years. He is a true leader," coach Brian Crookes said. 
Bryan Vachon- Hendricken
The 6-fooer guided the Hawks to a 23-2 record and a seventh consecutive Division I state championship. Not
as flashy as some guards, all he did was make plays, whether steals or game-winning shots. His 3-pointer defeated
Mount Pleasant in the D-I quarterfinals. He averaged 17.2 points. "He was very consistent, poised and calm
under pressure. He maintained that through the season and saved the best for last," coach Jamal Gomes said. 
Bryan Yarce- Cranston West
The only returning starter and one of two Falcons with varsity experience "is the glue that holds us together, " 
coach Jim Moretti said. A point guard who can also score, he averaged 18.3 points in leading West to an 18-7 
record and the Division I semifinals. He scored 31 points in that 81-79 overtime loss to North Kingstown, and 
scored West's nine overtime points. "He's old school. He doesn't talk trash. He just plays," said Moretti.
Tyler Zegarzewski- Chariho
The best center this season, the 6-foot-5 Zegarzewski tortured opponents with his outside shooting as
well as his work near the basket. He averaged 24.6 points, second in the state behind Michael Palumbo
of Classical and his 28.5 average. Coach Gene Wilson said he is "very skillful and intelligent. He has an
idea of what he wants to accomplish and is able to set a plan to achieve it. He's a great mentor for our
younger players."
Andrew Chrabascz- Portsmouth
The third-leading scorer in the state, with a 23.9 average, led the Patriots to a 22-1 record and the Division II
championship. The forward scored 30 points against Scituate in the championship game, which proved to be his
last in a Portsmouth uniform. He plans to transfer to Cushing Academy. "The only thing he cared about was to
win games for his team, especially to win the state championship," said coach Mike Lunney.
