Cuesta College sophomore shooting guard Roger Guardia can add another award to his growing list of honors this season.
Guardia, already a unanimous choice for Western State Conference Player of the Year, was named to the all-state first team Tuesday.
The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard helped lead the Cougars (26-6) to the CCCAA Southern California regional final, where they fell 82-80 to eventual state semifinalist Citrus.
Guardia averaged a team-best 15.8 points per game to go along with 6.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists and joins 2009 honorees Tom Schumacher and Joismar Ayarza as Cuesta’s only all-state first team members in 11 years.
Also making the all-state team was former Cal Poly combo guard Bo Henning.
Henning saw limited action as a Mustang, averaging 1.7 points per game in 17 games during the 2008-09 season. He was given honorable mention recognition for his work as a sophomore at Yuba College.
Henning left Cal Poly after two years, including using his redshirt season in 2007.
