PEPPER PIKE–Chardon senior Alex Sulka on Sunday was named the 2018 Ohio Varsity Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

Sulka, who received the award during halftime of the 2018 Ohio Varsity Senior Shootout at Ursuline College, averaged 28.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game in 2017-2018. Sulka scored 1,600 points in his career and is the school’s all-time scoring leader.

The three-time All-Western Reserve Conference performer carries a 3.0 grade point average.

“Alex set a precedent of excellence for our program,” said Chardon coach Chad Murawski. “His ability to score from any spot on the floor is truly remarkable. His physicality allows him to be a center and finish around the rim. His athleticism and skill allow him to be a guard and score off the dribble or from the outside. Because of his skill and ability to play any position, Alex is one of the best basketball players in the area. I will truly miss coaching Alex Sulka.”
