By Mark Kitchin


Chatham’s Colin McKenna was named Player of the Year and Todd Ervin was chosen Coach of the Year by the Morris County Varsity Boys Basketball Coaches Association during its end-of-the-year meeting.

McKenna, Ervin and players selected for the All-Morris County team will be feted at a luncheon to be held at Zeris Inn on Tuesday, March 15. Most of the seniors will be competing at the Morris-Sussex All-Star Classic basketball showcase which will be held at Hackettstown High School on Wednesday, March 16 in a 7 p.m. start.

McKenna, a senior forward, averaged 15 points a game and got more than his share of rebounds for the Morris County Tournament champions. His stellar games included 18-point performances in state tournament wins against Snyder and Rahway. His season high was a 29-point game against Summit during the holiday tournament.  He also had 18 points in the Morris County Tournament final against Randolph, a 57-49 win. He was a steady and stand out performer for the 28-2 Cougars.
