KHS All-Conference Basketball Players Named

The Kingston Redskins made up the majority of the Lake Country Conference – First Team All-Conference – this year. In light of the fact that the Kingston Redskins were this year’s Class 3A State Champions, that seems very fitting. Also, due to the fact that the Redskins were making their third straight State Tournament appearance, and also fitting because no team in Class 3A Basketball has had more wins in the last four years than the Redskins. It is also fitting that the MVP of the LCC, R. J. Weeks, would be from the Redskins. R. J. played at the point guard position for most of the season. He was moving to the middle from the wing position that he had played earlier in his career. His ball handling, execution of the offense, and often overlooked defense (in the form of shot blocking and rebounding), impressed everyone who saw him play. In addition to being named MVP of the LCC, he was also named to the All-Star Team at the Tournament of Champions in Tulsa, and the All-Tournament Team at the Oklahoma Baptist Invitational, and also the State Finals All–Tournament Team – not to mention the MVP of the New Year’s Classic. Joining Weeks on the Team is Jacob Germany. Jacob is the first NCAA Division 1 athlete ever from KHS. He was chosen as the MVP of the State Tournament. He was also named to the Tournament of Champions Team, and the OBU Invitational. Germany was also on the NYC All-Tourney Team. Conner Brister, Rylee Holmes, and Jacob Whipkey were all named LCC All-Conference. Brister was All-Tourney at the NYC and the OBU Invitational. Holmes was also on the NYC Team. For the girls named to the LCC, All-Conference, the Lady Redskins had Avri Weeks and Danna Wagnon aboard the First Team. Brit Henderson and Kassie Bailey were named Honorable Mention. Congratulations to the Lady Redskins for another stellar year that included their second straight State Tournament appearance.
