With his older brother making a name for himself nationally as the point guard for the No. 1 team in the country, Chartiers Valley's Matty McConnell is continuing to shine in gyms around the WPIAL.
McConnell, a 6-foot junior guard, led all South area players in scoring through games played Monday, Jan. 6 with a 22.5-point average. Currently, McConnell is averaging 21.1 points per game.
McConnell missed three games after undergoing an emergency appendectomy, and the Colts dropped their only game of the season during that stretch. Since returning, McConnell has led the Colts to three consecutive wins, including a key section victory against Montour in which McConnell scored a season-high 32 points.
