The Bluestone's senior point guard Raquan Canada was named to the 2017 VHSL All-Conference 34 Basketball first team last week.

Canada helped Bluestone to a 9-7 record in the James River District, good for fourth place in the league. Bluestone finished the season 10-11.

Canada is ranked sixth on the nine-player All-Conference team.

Team stat postings on Maxpreps show the 5’8”, 140-pound senior had a very productive season in the 17 out of 21 games posted with available stats.

Canada averaged 12.9 points per game, with 4.7 assists per match-up. He also averaged 3.5 rebounds.

Canada added 2.8 steals and 1.0 blocks a night to support his defense. All his percentages were above the national average for players of his power ranking.

Canada was a vital part of Bluestone’s conference and region run to the state playoffs last season. And he kept that level of play up this season.

Other players named to the All-Conference team are, Jared Baker (Amelia), Jack Twombly (Goochland), Tyquan Odum (Greensville), Tremaine Pugh (Randolph-Henry), Donte Taylor (Brunswick), Canada, and Jay Anderson (Nottoway).

Baker was selected as All-Conference 34 player of the year. Baker’s coach, Kevin Rather was named coach of the year.
