Boys game heavy on points
When the All-Stars team left the court at Danville High School on Sunday afternoon, they were probably seeing double.
Four seniors for the Senior-Stars chalked up double-doubles in the boys 2017 Mount Vernon News All-Star Senior Showcase.
Quin Winklefoos of Highland (22 points, 14 rebounds), Chase Smith of Utica (13 points, 11 rebounds), Dan Hatfield (16 points, 11 rebounds) of Northridge and Alijah Keen of Northmor (17 points, 18 rebounds) all led the way on both ends of the court for the Senior-Stars as they ran away with a 131-90 win.
The Senior-Stars had all eight of their players in double figures for points scored. Winklefoos’ performance earned him the Most Valuable Player trophy for the game. He hit a bucket late in the first half to give the Senior-Stars a 60-32 lead — their biggest margin of the first half.
Skal nets 43 to set new mark
DANVILLE — Mount Vernon’s Alexa Skal put on a performance for the ages in Sunday’s Mount Vernon News All-Star Senior Showcase.
Skal broke three showcase records and put her name on the list for two others in leading the All-Stars to a 100-91 victory over the Senior Stars in the game played at Danville.
And basketball isn’t usually considered her best sport.
The Mount Vernon Nazarene University soccer signee made everyone forget her first sport Sunday, destroying the showcase record for points in the game with 43. The old record was 33 by Paige Cannon of Johnstown just two years ago.
