After racing through the conference with an unblemished, the Wabash boys’ basketball team placed three players on the Three Rivers Conference (TRC) All-Conference team.
Trenton Daughtry, Elijah Vander Velden and Dereck Vogel all earned spots on the All-TRC team. Wabash and Peru each had three players on the team with the Tigers placing Trey Curtis, Daunte Majors and Matt Ross on the team.
Southwood’s Carson Rich, Manchester’s Weston Hamby and Northfield’s Clayton Tomlinson all earned spots from Wabash County. The rest of the All-TRC team was comprised of Maconaquah’s Sam Bourne, North Miami’s Tristan Working, Rochester’s Grant McCarter and Quinn Stesiak, Tippecanoe Valley’s Tanner Trippiedi and Whitko’s Brett Sickafoose.
Wabash finished the TRC season with an unbeaten 9-0 record, winning by an average of 11.1 points per game on the season. Peru and Maconaquah tied for second with 7-2 records. Southwood finished with a 5-4 mark to take fifth, Manchester was sixth with a 4-5 mark and Northfield was ninth with a 1-8 mark.
Sickafoose led the TRC in scoring at 23.7 points per game while Rich was second at 17.8 per game. Daughtry was fourth at 14.8 points per game.
Ross and Vander Velden were first and second in the TRC in rebounding, respectively, with 10.7 and 8.9 rebounds per game. Weston Hamby led the TRC in assists with 6.7 dimes per game.
Tomlinson did a bit of everything for the Norse, averaging 13.6 points, 4.5 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 3.3 steals per contest. The junior point guard led Northfield in each of those categories on the season.
Southwood and Rochester were the only two TRC teams to win sectional titles. The Knights defeated Lakeland Christian Academy 78-25 in the Southern Wells sectional finals while Rochester knocked off Rensselaer Central in double overtime, 60-52, at the Winamac sectional.
Both schools, though, saw their regionals postponed as the IHSAA delayed the tournament across the state indefinitely.
