In the last five-game run to the championship, Avenoso yielded only three goals, and ran a string of 150 saves on 153 shots with a 0.980 save percentage and 102 consecutive saves over a 183-minute span.

To win the championship, Avenoso helped the team shut out the University of Pennsylvania, 5–0 in the semis, and, in the finals, shut out Princeton, 5–0.

Both Avenoso and Dimock helped take BRHS to the Public A State Finals in 2014.

Avenoso set a Bridgewater-Raritan goaltending record with nine-and-one-third shutouts, eight in his senior year, and a 0.935 save average.
