September 28th Update
Noah Vettrus is one the unlucky guys who had an injury take most of his 17U Grassroots season away from him. The Dakota Bucks had an outstanding season and Noah did play for one weekend after he was healthy.
“I was only healthy to play in one tournament but it was still good to hang out with the guys at the tournaments and try to learn as much as I could,” Noah said.
“It was a tough way to spend the last summer I could play but I tried to still be involved as much as possible.”
The West Central guard pushed his team over .500 a year ago having some monster scoring outputs that people are still talking about today. Individually Noah is an accomplished three sport athlete but he’s caring more about team success for this winter.
“I think this season will go a lot like last season, we will have a pretty good team and a shot to make a run at state,” Vettrus explained. “I might run into a few more double teams than last year so I will have to adjust to that.”
College basketball is an option Vettrus has for his future as five schools remain strongly in the hunt.
“I have been hearing a lot from Mount Marty, Dakota Wesleyan, Dordt, and Dakota State. I also received an offer from Northwestern (Orange City).”
Watch Vettrus closely this year as you are likely to hear of him scoring 30 plus often, likely a 40 point plus game or two, and who knows, if he gets incredibly hot, maybe 50.
Bottom line, Vetrus is one of the most dangerous scorers in the senior class.
May 27th Update
Six-foot-2, 170 pound guard Noah Vettrus spent his winter putting up massive scoring numbers for a 12-10 team. Vettrus made big headlines with a 43 point game early in the winter and several 30 plus performances in the games that followed.
Vettrus is a three sport standout earning all conference in football and all state in track in the high jump. Basketball was the big season though as Noah earned all state.
Vettrus is also a member of the Dakota Bucks who is 6-2 after two events but he’s been injured so far.
“I wasn't able to play because I had surgery on my wrist after the high school season but they have been playing good and I'm excited to get back soon,” said Noah. “I think I'm getting the cast off June 2.”
Noah was excited about the progress he made over the winter.
“I feel like I settled in more as the season went on and I eliminated mistakes and the game seemed to slow down more and I grew more accustom to the double and triple teams I encountered,” said Vettrus.
Schools are excited about Noah and have been calling regularly.
“I’ve heard some from Northwestern, Dordt, Mount Marty, Dakota Wesleyan, Gustavus, and the University of Mary,” said Vettrus.
