Three high school basketball teams from the Central Prairie League made it to a state basketball tournament.
St. John-Hudson’s boys won a Class 1A Division-I title, beating South Haven 70-50.
St. John’s girls finished fourth in 1A D-I, and the Ness City boys finished fourth in 2A.
It was no surprise that the three unanimous selections came from St. John.
Senior Spencer Nusser and sophomore Dean Wade were unanimously selected for the All-CPL first team voted on by the league’s coaches.
Wade finished with a double-double in the championship game, scoring 19 points and grabbing 14 rebounds.
Nusser finished with 10 points.
The Tigers had four players make the all-league teams.
Macksville, which had three players receive All-CPL honors, had Adolfo Ibarra and Tanner Tranbarger on the first team.
Ness City’s Colin Foos rounded out the top team.
Central Plains had three players make All-CPL teams, and Otis-Bison had two.
For the girls, St. John senior Jamie Waters was the only unanimous selection.
She was joined by senior teammate Morgan Osborne on the league’s first team. The Lady Tigers had four selections.
Jennifer Hitschmann, who was a first-team selection, led five Central Plains girls with all-league honors.
