Gardner Edgerton High School’s Brett Wright, Kyle Hultgren and Nash Bostwick were recently named to the All-Eastern Kansas League basketball team.
Wright was a first-team selection. The senior point guard averaged 14.1 points per game and dished out a school record 7.6 assists per game.
“Brett was such a valuable asset to our team,” said GEHS Coach Jeff Langehr. “He spearheaded our offense, distributed the ball unselfishly and was our leading scorer in league play.”
Wright also led the team in steals with 31, and a 76.5 percent free-throw rate.
Hultgren earned second team honors. He shot over 60 percent from the field, averaging more than 15 points per game and six rebounds.
“I thought Kyle should have been given first team status,” added Langehr. “He led our team in scoring for the second straight year, and we will really miss his consistent scoring next season.”
Both Wright and Hultgren have already garnered All-State honorable mentions in different publications.
Bostwick earned an honorable mention. He averaged 10.2 points per game and shot 44 percent from behind the three-point arc.
“He was our best defensive player and one of our primary reasons for our winning this season,” said Langehr. “We were blessed by his presence on the team.”
Their efforts helped GEHS to an 11-9 record this season.
