Tim Bazinet has the distinction of being the first Bartlett boys basketball player to score 1,000 points for his career.
In his senior year, the Indians compiled a 9-1 Border Conference record, with an overall record of 15-3. It was reported that the team faired very well, despite unfavorable predictions.
Highlights of that 1976-77 season include Tim reaching the 1,000-point plateau and a trip to the Clark Tournament and District Tournament. Tim was a team co-captain that season.
Tim was also a four year starter on the Indians boys soccer team, which won the first and only District Championship to date for the Indians. He was named Most Valuable Player of the District Tournament as well as Central Mass. All-Star. He also played three years on the Green and White baseball team.
After his graduation from Bartlett in 1977, Tim went on to a full basketball scholarship at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He graduated from the Worcester college as an engineer, and has been in California ever since.
His brother Gregory remembers how proud his mom and dad, Grade and Edmund Bazinet, were of Tim’s accomplishments. As a matter of fact, the family sent Tim the “game ball” just a few years ago for Tim’s sons to admire.
