Myers named to all-NCC 1st team by every coach
WEBSTER CITY – Following a standout season at the offensive end of the floor, Webster City junior shooting guard Mason Myers was named to the all-North Central Conference first team, it was announced last night.
All seven first-team members were unanimous selections by the 10 league coaches. Myers was joined on the squad by Clear Lake’s Spencer Davidson and Matt Stephany, Iowa Falls-Alden’s Casey Schlatter, Algona Bishop Garrigan’s Nathan Krieps, Humboldt’s Jaxon Heinz and Fort Dodge St. Edmond’s Robby Burke.
Myers, Stephany and Heinz will all return next season.
“(Myers) obviously has a lot of respect from the other teams’ coaches and he had some big games for us at the offensive end,” WCHS head coach Marty McKinney said. “He’s a good offensive player.”
Myers, a two-year starter, overcame a torn ACL in the offseason to score 18.3 points per game this winter. He shot 40 percent from the floor and also averaged a team-best 5.2 rebounds.
Schlatter, a Drake University recruit, led the league and state in scoring at 34.6 points an outing. Burke (22.1), Krieps (20.3) and Davidson (18.4) were in front of Myers.
Lynx senior Ben Mossman was named to the third team. He was the emotional leader for the squad throughout the season and also took on a bigger scoring role, particularly early in the campaign while Myers sat out.
Mossman averaged 9.9 points and 5.1 boards.
“Ben did a lot of things that don’t maybe show up in the stat sheet … he usually got the tough match-up defensively,” McKinney said. “He played his heart out every night whether things were going well or not. You never questioned his effort.”
