Two Prince of Peace seniors —Nic Roth, who was unanimously selected, and Lucas Laufenberg — also found themselves onto the East’s first team.
Roth and Laufenberg each had 13 points per game with Roth edging his senior teammate by two points. Roth had 288; Laufenberg had 286. They both shot 44 percent while Laufenberg had more free throw makes and attempts.
“Nic was our team leader,” Irish coach Gerry Murphy said. “He usually had to guard the opponent’s best player, and he did a lot for us this year; I thought he got in good shape, lost 50 pounds from the year before.
“I think he was a superhero for us,” Murphy said of Roth.
Meanwhile, Murphy kept seeing good things out of Laufenberg.
“He was a second teamer for us last year,” Murphy said. “Lucas has been steady for us the last few years; the two were our dynamic duo. When they had good games, we usually won or were right there at the end.”
Caleb Kitteringham was also named to the All-Conference honorable mention group.
“All three of us have been playing for a long time,” Roth said after the Irish’s final game on Feb. 20. “It’s been really fun to play with Caleb, Lucas, and AJ (Williams).”
On the second team, Marquette Catholic juniors Logan Schroeder and Grant Kilburg made it as well as Calamus-Wheatland senior Josh Poell and freshmen Garrett Rickels and Brett Kelting.
Poell led Calamus-Wheatland with 12 points a game while the two freshmen scored nine points a game.
