Dickinson’s Jaiden Wright and Kobe Krenz were named to the Class A second-team North Dakota all-state team for their efforts during the 2019-20 basketball season.
Head coach Dan Glasser texted Krenz and Wright about their selection on Wednesday night and they watched the news that night to see their names announced.
The two seniors helped lead the Midgets to a 15-11 record and the state tournament for the first time since 2017.
“It is an incredible honor,” Wright said. “I got a lot of support from everyone including family, coaches and teammates. I have credit to them”
Dickinson was the only team with more than one member on either all-state team.
Krenz was third in the Western Dakota Association averaging 24.5 points per game and Wright was fifth averaging 20.3 points per game.
Krenz also led the WDA in steals with 2.9 per game and averaged 3 assists per game.
Both players shot over 80% from the free throw line, over 40% from the field and over 35% from behind the three point line.
“It is awesome to be named all-state with him. I love (Kobe) and I am proud of him,” Wright said. He puts in a lot of hard work and dedication. It is very special.”
On the girls side, Dickinson’s Peyton Selle was named to the Class A second-team all-state team.
Selle helped lead the Midgets to the WDA tournament.
She was the fourth leading scorer in the WDA, averaging almost 15 points per game along with almost seven rebounds per contest. She led the WDA with 3.8 steals per game as well.
