Littler, Nelson and Younker Receive All-WCAC Honors


Three ACGC boys' basketball players have received all-West Central Activities Conference recognition as determined by the conference coaches. Junior Bryce Littler was named to the second team, while senior Noah Nelson and junior Quynton Younker received honorable mention status.

The threesome made up the top three scorers for the Chargers this season. Littler led with 13.3 points per game in conference play, while Younker nearly averaged double digits with a 9.8 average, and Nelson scored 6.6 points per conference game. Littler's 13 points per game placed him tenth in individual scoring in the WCAC.

Littler placed eleventh in conference action in three point percentage, as he knocked down 35% of his trey attempts, good for the eleventh best conference percentage. (Teammate Noah Sargent connected on 46% of his tries, which was tops in the conference for players that attempted at least fifty long balls.) Littler also attempted and made over twice as many free throws as anyone on the team, as he successfully made 47 of 66 charity tosses for 71%. That percentage placed him fifth in the conference for players who attempted at least fifty free throws. He also paced the Chargers in assists with 43.

Nelson led the team in free throw percentage, connecting on 10 of 13 tries for 77%. He was also second to Littler in assists with 31and was tops in steals with 18.

The 6'5" Younker was the leading rebounder for ACGC with 106, including 38 offensive boards and 68 on the defensive glass. His 106 rebounds placed him tenth among WCAC players, while his offensive and defensive totals were also both good enough to place him tenth in those categories.

The Chargers finished the season with a 6-15 record overall and a 3-13 mark in the WCAC. Both represent the best finishes for ACGC in its brief three year history.
