It’s been three months since the Wauneta-Palisade boys’ basketball team’s trip to the state tournament, but Friday two Broncos were back on the hardwood, traveling to Cambridge for the annual CSO All-Star game.
Logan Bischoff and Connor Kayton were part of the West team. Others on the team included Perkins County’s Quinton Hite; Medicine Valley’s Lucas Gleisberg; McCook’s Cody Wudtke, Zayne Gillen and Sean Backer; Dundy County-Stratton’s Tyler Freeland; Wallace’s Joshua Grauerholz; and Tanner Bauer from Hitchcock County.
For the East team were Southern Valley’s Spencer Kucera and Dakota Best; Arapahoe’s Isaac Watson, Gage Schutz and Wyatt Anderson; Bertrand’s Nick High and Ryan Dahlgren; Cambridge’s Zane Petersen; Alma’s Garrett Ring; and Holdrege’s Luke Ackerman.
After leading at the end of the first quarter, the West was out scored 11-22 in the second and lost the game 72-90.
Kayton scored five points and Bischoff two.
Hite was named West MVP. Ackerman was named MVP on the East team.
The East also won the girls’ game, winning 71-61.
McCook’s Megan Ruppert was MVP for the West and Southern Valley’s McKenzie Nielsen was the East team’s MVP.
The East team led throughout the game, at times holding a 20-point lead. A strong second half by the West team narrowed the margin to ten points.
Other players from the West were Perkins County’s Jessica Hoffert and Shania Metcalf; McCook’s Brooklyn Trew; Medicine Valley’s Taylor Sandoe; Chase County’s Bethany Sorensen; Hitchcock County’s Allyson Cole; Hayes Center’s Sarah Cox; Wallace’s Chelsea Sowle; and Tess Whitman of Maywood.
