Players from Edison, West Potomac and Hayfield were among the selections for the 2019-2020 All-Occoquan Region boys basketball team, which was announced earlier this week.
West Potomac guard Bradley Harden was one of three local players to earn first-team all-region honors. A three-year varsity player, Harden led the Wolverines to the regular season crown this year and helped get West Potomac to the district finals in each of his years on varsity. Harden has committed to play collegiately at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
Edison guard Jared Clawson was also selected to the first team after leading the Eagles to a National District championship and 19-5 record this season. Clawson average 19 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals per game this season. He finishes his Edison career with more than 1,000 points, and it’s his third consecutive All-Region selection.
Hayfield big man Daniel Peterson rounded out the first-team selections from area schools. Peterson was the Player of the Year in the Gunston District, where he averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds a game for the Hawks.
Peterson and the Hawks continue their season tonight, as Hayfield takes on Lake Braddock in the regional semifinals at 8 p.m. at Fairfax High School. Hayfield topped rival Edison in the region quarterfinals, while West Potomac fell to South County.
