The Northeast Kansas League was generally strong across the board, but only one team made it to state, and no player earned all-state honors. There’s a strong crop of juniors who will be back in this league.

Here’s a look back, and a look forward, for the Northeast Kansas League:

Top Team: Valley Falls

The Dragons returned a ton of talent from the previous season, and rolled a 17-5 record through sub-state. They lost to Wabaunsee at state. You could make an argument for Jefferson North, which went 14-4 and lost to the Wabaunsee juggernaut in sub-state by a much closer margin.

League Player of the Year: Ryan Feldkamp, junior, Jefferson North

You could make an argument for a few others, but Feldkamp’s numbers give him the edge. The 6-foot-4 junior averaged 16.3 points and 6.6 boards for the Chargers.

Hawk is a graceful and explosive athlete who didn’t always put up huge numbers, but was always key to what Valley Falls accomplished. He could explode occasionally for 20-point outings. He averaged 12.3 points and 7.0 boards for the Dragons.
