2021: Senior Duos

Posted On: 11/22/19 9:46 AM

The Carrington Cardinals went into last year as one of the top teams in Class B and while they struggled with inconsistency at times, they finished the season with 16 wins and an extended run in the Region 3 tournament. The team dealt with a number of injuries plus a significant amount of roster turnover, but proved capable of beating quality teams throughout the year. Now, with even more roster turnover, the Cardinals will rely heavily on returning all-stater Seth Nelson as they head into 2019-20. 

KEY RETURNERS: Seth Nelson

Nelson’s a returning all-state guy after a monster junior season in which the 6-foot-4 forward had his share of eye-popping performances. He’s big, strong and athletic. Nelson’s got the ability to not only dominate on the glass and around the rim, but he’s an emerging perimeter shooter and has shown he’s more than capable of handling the ball, orchestrating an offense and making plays for guys. He’ll have to carry a heavy load this winter, but he’s capable of putting up 20-plus points and 10-plus rebounds per game.

STEPPING INTO NEW ROLES: Hunter Mittleider, Nathan Unruh, Lucas Hendrickson, Jacob Seaburg, Drew Schroeder
