Quinn Snyder grabbed the spotlight Tuesday night.

Cooperstown senior Snyder finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds, the latter contributing to a single-season program record, to help the Redskins clinch Division II of the Center State Conference with a 71-37 thumping of visiting Sherburne-Earlville.

"He's a rebounding machine," Cooperstown coach Dave Bertram said of Snyder, who has 187 rebounds this winter. "He has great timing and good hands. He can jump three times before somebody else jumps once."

Snyder, a 6-foot-2 forward who is averaging 9.3 rebounds this season, entered Tuesday's game tied with Billy Hribar, who set the previous record as a senior for the 2002-2003 Redskins. Hribar helped Cooperstown to a Class C state championship appearance that season.

Luke Tirrell contributed 13 points, Ryan Davine scored 12 and Eric Jederlinic had 10 for the Redskins (17-3, 9-1), who jumped to a 20-8 lead after one quarter and took a 40-16 advantage into halftime.

Cooperstown, which clinched its first division title since 2005, is off until the Section Three Class C Tournament begins. Bertram said the Section Three seeding meeting is Sunday and that his team should receive a first-round bye.

Garrett Ponack scored a game-high 14 points to pace the Marauders.
