RANDOLPH — Several Randolph athletes recently picked up post-season honors.
The Lewis & Clark Conference announced its All Conference boys and girls basketball teams and honorable mention lists last week.
Randolph seniors Carter Schnoor and Keaton Backhaus were West Division First Team selections for the Cardinals while senior Jamison Svehla was honorable mention.
The Cardinals (17-8) saw a run to the D2 tournament sparked by the play of Schnoor (16.4 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 4.7 apg and 2.7 spg), Backhaus (14.2 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 3.3 apg and 2.1 spg) and Svehla (15 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 3.4 apg an 1.9 spg).
Members of the State Champion Laurel-Concord-Coleridge Bear basketball team are beginning to pick up post-season honors.
A pair of seniors — Noah Schutte and Ty Erwin — earned several honors.
They were both named as members of the elite Omaha World Herald All State First Team for Class D1, as well as the Norfolk Daily News’ Elite Eight team.
The Lincoln Journal Star named Schutte to its All State First Team, and also named him as the Honorary Team Captain. The Lincoln newspaper gave All State Honorable Mention status to Ty Erwin, Evan Haisch, and Cael Hartung.
Seniors Noah Schutte and Ty Erwin of Laurel/Concord/Coleridge earned top honors to lead the D1 state champion Bears team on the East Division team while junior Cael Hartung and sophomore Evan Haisch made honorable mention selection.
Schutte was a dominant force scoring 23.6 ppg, grabbing 13.1 rebounds a night and dishing three assists while ripping 2.7 steals an outing.
Erwin went for 14.2 ppg, 4.2 rpg and 3.6 apg. Hartung (8.6 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Haisch (11.7 ppg, 3.5 rpg) did their fair share for the champions.
“Noah was our go-to guy,” LCC head coach Todd Erwin said. “He works hard and can do everything. However, he learned how to do the right things to make his teammates better and that is what got us over the top.”
Randolph junior Jaiden Taylor was named to the All Conference First Team and was named All State Honorable Mention by the Omaha World Herald.
Gracie Eledge earned All State Honorable Mention status.
The Lady Cardinals went 7-15 this year and Taylor wrapped up the campaign with an average of nine points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.7 steals a night.
“Jaiden had a great year despite dealing with some injuries that kept her out of multiple games and limited her in others,” Randolph head coach Marcus Pappenhausen said. “She had a three-game stretch in the middle of the season where she averaged over 20 points, nine steals and eight rebounds per game. I really wish she could have been healthy all year as she can make a huge difference in a game.
