Dickes, Lackas earn scoring honors

Cedar Catholic's Dana Dickes outscored all other girls’ basketball players in Cedar County in 2011.

HARTINGTON —  A pair of familiar names paced all area basketball players in scoring this season.
Dana Dickes, who played post for the Lady Trojans during their state runner-up team last year and on this year’s Class C2 Third-place team, outscored all other girls’ basketball players in Cedar County in 2011 to bring home top scoring honors.

She connected for 359 points, an  average of 16 points per game. Dickes was second in scoring last season, hitting for 320 points. Wynot’s Sarah Schulte took top honors last season.
The 5-11 senior helped lead Cedar to three straight state tournament appearances. Cedar teams posted a 58-16 record during her final three years on the court here.
In her final season for the Lady Trojans, Dickes ended up connecting on 60 percent of her field goal attempts and 64 percent of her foul shots.
The second-biggest Cedar County scorer in girls’ basketball this season was Mandy Nelson of Laurel-Concord-Coleridge. Despite missing several games this season, the L-C-C junior connected for 330 points on the season. Nelson’s teammate, Jade Cunningham, was next on the scoring list with 310 points.
Lackas led the Randolph Cardinals to their second straight Class D1 state tourney appearance this year.
This marks the second year in a row Lackas has led Cedar County in scoring. He hit for 283 points last season to again edge out Moser for the scoring honors. Moser finished the 2009-10 season just three points behind with 280 points.
He connected on 139-313 field goals on the year and hit 34 percent of his shots from behind the arc.
Andy Moser, a post player for the state-rated Trojan basketball team was the second-biggest scorer in the County this season. For his efforts, he earned Second-Team All State honors from the Lincoln Journal Star and the Omaha World Herald this season.
Moser was a great contributor for Cedar, Coach Matt Steffen said.
“Andy Moser has had a great career at Cedar with 831 points, 408 rebounds and 70 blocked shots,”
Hartington’s Neil Kramer was the third biggest scorer in the county this year.
Kramer paced the Wildcat offense this season, hitting for 281 points. He also dominated the boards for the Cats, pulling down 198 rebounds and earning 10 double-doubles on the year.
