An incredible season on the high school basketball courts led to an all-star appearance for a quartet of Moose Jaw high school basketball league players on Saturday at Luther College in Regina.
Kyle Boughen and Riley Seaborn of the 4A boys provincial champion Central Cyclones saw action for Team South while Piper Ingalls represented the 4A girls bronze medallist Peacock Toilers and Brooklyn Martens played for the 3A girls champion Briercrest Christian Academy Cougars in the girls contest.
As could be expected, all four players were standouts for their respective teams – as was the case for everyone on the floor in the two games, which brought together the top seniors from all school sizes throughout the province.
Seaborn and Boughen were backcourt standouts for the Cyclones all season, anchoring a crew of seniors that posted a record-setting season on their way to rolling to the provincial title at Hoopla in Saskatoon recently.
Ingalls was the de facto on-court leader for Peacock, with her stellar ball control and shooting skill pacing the Toilers to another girls league city championship and a bronze medal at Hoopla – a game Ingalls scored 38 points in.
Martens’ impressive inside presence made her a nightmare for opponents to play against all season, especially in the 3A division where the Cougars were nigh unstoppable on their way to their provincial title.
All four players hit the scoresheet in the two games, with Boughen among the South teams’ leaders as he lead all scorers with eight points in the first quarter and finished with 14, including a pair of three pointers. Seaborn added four points in the South’s 80-74 victory
Ingalls finished third in scoring for the South in the girls game, scoring 10 points, including two shots from behind the arc. Martens scored two as the North took an 89-69 win.
Provincial team member Caleb Racette of Luther High School scored 16 points and was the game MVP for the boys contest, Alana Olson of Maidstone won the honour for the girls game after a seven-point showing.
