Contreras named 1st-Team All Conference

2011 AVHS grad averaged 11.3 points for season

Freshman Jacob Contreras has been named to the first-team, All Coast Conference North Division basketball squad, reported Las Positas College.

Contreras, a 6-1 guard from Amador Valley High School, averaged 11.3 points for the season, including 13.1 in conference play. His late-season scoring surge, particularly against the top team in the state, propelled Contreras to first-team honors.

Over the final eight games, Conteras averaged 16.9 points and became one of the most dangerous long-range shooters in the conference, according to Tony Costello, men's basketball coach.

"His performance included scoring efforts of 18 and 35 points in two games against City College of San Francisco, the state's only unbeaten team," said Costello.

Against CCSF, Contreras shot 16 of 28 (57%) from the field, including 12 of 20 (60%) from 3-point range. His other big games down the stretch were 23 points against Ohlone and 20 points against Cañada.

Contreras has also been named to the Las Positas College Academic honors list with a 3.8 GPA, majoring in Fire Service Technology.

At Amador Valley, Contreras, a 2011 grad, made the 2011 1st Team all East Bay Athletic League basketball selection and was named 2011 Amador Valley High school Male Athlete of the Year.
