Ruegg and Carrillo look to lead Acalanes basketball

Last season, the Acalanes High School boys basketball team went 16-11. That team also only consisted of four seniors, so they are getting some good guys back this season.

Headlining that list is senior shooting guard Scott Ruegg. Last season, Ruegg led the team in scoring with 16.3 points per game. He also added three assists and four rebounds per game. Ruegg is 6’1″ and weights about 170 pounds According to head coach Sol Henik, Ruegg has committed to playing at Colorado College next season.

“Ruegg is a returning captain for us,” Henik said. “ He was also first-team all league last season.”

Another player looking to standout is senior power forward Joey Carrillo. Carrillo is 6’4″ and weights about 200 pounds. Last season, he was second on the team in scoring with 12.5 points per game. He also added a team-high 5.4 rebounds per game. According to Henik, Carrillo will be attending UC Davis to continue his football career in a year.

It is clear that the Acalanes players are eager to get out there and have a successful season. Henik attributes much of the program’s success to late coach Chris Huber. Huber recently passed from complications with Parkinson’s, but he was and still is very impactful for this team.

“He was very instrumental in building this program,” Henik said. “He brought a tremendous amount of positivity, optimism and player development.”

Needless to say, the players at Acalanes cannot wait to get out on the court. Look for Ruegg, Carrillo and the rest of Acalanes to impress this season.
