Morris Area figures to be one of the best teams in Class AA this upcoming winter after a solid year in 2017-18. Camden Arndt is arguably the team’s top all-around returner.
Arndt, a 6-foot-4 swingman, averaged 12 points per game for the Tigers and is one of the team’s best distributors and defenders. He spent the spring and summer playing in the Comets program and was successful providing production in a multitude of ways.
“This summer playing with Comets was a great experience,” said Arndt. “I am very glad to get be friends with a great group of guys I played with and being able to play against top level competition every weekend was awesome.”
Playing against top-flight competition against guys with similar talent and goals was a great opportunity for Arndt.
“I think that’s important because it really shows your weaknesses and then you are able to improve your game so much. I think handling pressure and finishing at the rim I really improved at this summer. I feel like my mid-range game and three point shot always have room for improvement so I want to continue working on that.”
Arndt is a multi-sport star in Morris and has drawn quite a bit of interest from college football and basketball programs.
“College hoops has always been a dream of mine and I’m just waiting for the right opportunity,” said Arndt. “I have some options to play football including SMSU and I’ve talked to the basketball coach about playing both that’s an option I really like. I’m also considering Jamestown, Mayville State, Concordia and any other colleges that reach out about basketball.”
Morris was a mid-level team last season but with a great group of returners, Arndt said the team’s expectations are high.
“This upcoming season we have a really good core group of guys and I believe if we work hard throughout the season we can make a deep playoff run,” Arndt said.
