Two schools with great football programs met on the basketball court in the Div.1 final of 1A. Some great players showed they are just as good on the hardwood.

Here are some of the best performances from Olpe’s win over South Gray:

Jordan Barnard Jordan Barnard 6'1" | CG Olpe | 2021 State KS , senior, Olpe:

The 6-foot-1 senior was good all season. But he took it to another level when the chips were down. He connected on 10-16 from the field in the semifinal against a really good Little River Team. Then he topped all scorers in the final with 17 points. He hit 6-11 from the field and played with the kind of leadership and determination that makes Olpe such a great program.

Derek Hoelting, junior, Olpe:

Though just 5-foot-11, Hoelting battled for a game-high 9 rebounds against Little River. He also knocked down 11 points. In the finale, he was big again with 10 points. Hoelting is an important cog, rebounding, guarding on the perimeter and battling inside. As one of the top returners, he helped set the tone for the program.

Damon Redeker, junior, Olpe:

Another returner who knew what it would take to win it all, Redeker was one of the team’s leaders
