Chargers Fare Well in Boys All WCAC Selections
Three ACGC boys' basketball players were honored by the conference coaches when they were recently selected to the all WCAC honor teams. In addition, Charger coach Lance Kading earned a well deserved coach of the year award as determined by his peers in the WCAC.
The Kading family was well represented as coach Kading's sons, senior Eli and junior Miles, were selected to the first and second teams respectively. Eli was the only unanimous selection this year as he put up some impressive numbers in conference play. He was the second leading scorer in the WCAC with 353 points and third in scoring average with an average of 15.3 points per game.
Miles averaged 11.2 points per game for the Chargers and was the third leading three point shooter in the league with 49 successful treys. He also placed in the top ten in total assists with 71, good for ninth among conference players.
The third Charger to be honored was senior Lucas Marsh who was given honorable mention status by the coaches. Marsh was the second leading rebounder in conference play, grabbing an average of 8.7 boards per contest and also averaged double figures in points with 10.6 per game.
Coach Kading led the Chargers to their best season in the five year history of ACGC basketball as the team set a school record of 17 wins against just 6 losses. The team placed third among conference teams with a scoring average of 60.2 points per game, led the league in offensive rebounds with 11.2 per game, and was second in overall rebounding with 33.5 rebounds per game. Go Chargers!
