Preseason Player of the Year: Zach Martinek, West Fork — 2019
The 6-foot-4 guard had a massively successful offseason on the grassroots and camp trail; and he’s not only poised to be the most dominant player in this conference, but also one of the more dominant in the state. Look for Martinek to be a tough and skilled scorer, who will rebound and defend at high a high level.
Zach Martinek, West Fork —2019
18.8 points, 2.3 assists, 1.9 steals, 5.8 rebounds
The conference’s second-leading scoring leader from a season ago returns, and trust us, he’s bigger and better than ever. We’ve seen him dominate on several different occasions this offseason.
Collin Kramer, Saint Angsar — 2019
13.9 points, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals, 6.6 rebounds
Saint Angsar won 11 games last season and return five of its six leading scorers. Kramer, a versatile 6-foot-4 forward, will lead the lead this season, and he’ll be at the helm for a Saints squad with high hopes.
Josh Fitzgerald, Newman Catholic — 2019
12.2 points, 3.1 assists, 2.4 steals
A dual-sport star, Fitzgerald is known more for his baseball prowess, but the athletic point guard is electric on the hardwood, too. At just 5’11, he’ll get up and dunk with ease.
Ethan Kirchgatter, Saint Angsar — 2019
14.6 points, 3.9 assists, 2.5 steals, 4.7 rebounds
Kirchgatter is a versatile threat who does a little bit of everything for the Saints. He was the leading scorer last season for an 11-win team, and he could be up around 20 points per game this winter.
Mitchell Halloran, West Fork — 2019
11.5 points, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 3.2 rebounds
West Fork is always one of the better teams in the conference, and after winning 19 games a season ago, the team’s top two scorer’s return. Martinek will lead the Warhawks, and Halloran will also be critical to their success.
