Three Evart girls named to All-Highland team
EVART — Freshman Mara VanOrder and sophomore Kristin Kullman represented Evart girls basketball on the All-Highland Conference first team announced recently while senior Lydia Wetters was on the honorable mention list.
Evart tied for fourth place in the conference.
Kullman averaged 9.4 points a game and was Evart’s leading scorer and also averaged 3.5 rebounds.
Kullman played point guard for the first time.
“As the year went on, you could see she had a lot of confidence in her shot,” said Evart coach Larry Brown. “She was our best long- range shooter. She had a great year overall being a sophomore.”
VanOrder averaged 12.2 rebounds and just under nine points a game.
“She was our best athlete by far,” Brown said. “I thought she did a good job. She learned how to play under control. Her rebounding was exceptional for a freshman. She’ll get better as she gets older and more confident with her shot.”
Wetters was a vocal leader for the Wildcats.
“She was a good leader to have,” Brown said. “She gave me everything she had. If I needed her to play guard she’d play guard. If I needed her to play post she’d play post. She just wanted to play basketball. That’s what was so great about her. Her free throws got better as the year went on.”
