Tewksbury has a long list of talented athletes, and not all of them represented the Redmen this winter sports season.

Several local athletes excelled during the most recent campaign for other schools in the area, leading their teams on the ice and the hardwood.

Among those athletes are Scott Duarte and Rachael Utegg. The pair of Tewksbury residents helped Austin Prep in their respective hockey brackets, as the Cougars had strong boys and girls campaigns.

For the second straight year, Duarte received a runner up medal as Austin Prep couldn't quite slow down now four-time champion Malden Catholic in the title game at TD Garden.

Utegg and the Austin Prep girls hockey team were clipped by Arlington Catholic in the Division 1 semifinal round.

On the hardwood, former Tewksbury travel and AAU basketball player Nick Cambi led Central Catholic all the way to the state bracket. Cambi's team toppled Catholic Memorial, 79-66, in the semifinal round.

Two-time state champion Putnam then had just enough to get past Cambi and his teammates, earning the championship over the weekend with a 74-70 decision.

During Monday night's game, the Boston Bruins recognized a long list of players with their annual Boston Bruins-MIAA Sportsmanship Awards.

Among the winners were Tewksbury residents Nick Cervizzi, representingLowell Catholic and the Catholic Central League Small Division, and Scott Browne for Shawsheen Tech and the Commonwealth Athletic Conference.

Hi Matt, Thanks for mentioning Nick in your article. Nick's team, Central Catholic beat Catholic Memorial in the Division 1 Boys' Basketball State Semifinals 79 to 66 at TD Garden on March 10, 2014. Central Catholic lost by four points in the Mass. State Final game at the DCU Center in Worcester to Putnam Tech of Springfield on March 15, 2014. The final score was 74 to 70.

Sorry about the confusion, Ann. I misread the bracket when putting the story together. That should be corrected now. Thanks!

Hi Matt, Thanks for the correction. Nick's last name is Cambio. It appears incorrectly in a couple of places in the article. Thanks, Ann Cambio
