Gatewood, Kelly earn Orioles postseason honors

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

A pair of Concordia Orioles joined several other I-70 Conference players on the Class 2 District 15 All-District team for their efforts on the hardwood this season.

Sophomores Matt Gatewood and Cameron Kelly each earned spots on the 10-player roster as voted on by the eight coaches from the district.

Gatewood averaged 13 points per game and shot 48 percent from the field. Kelly matched the 13-points-per-game average to lead the Orioles and also grabbed 9.2 rebounds per contest and blocked nearly two shots a game.

Santa Fe's Andrew Edwards and Dobber Burton also made the cut. Edwards was a double-double machine, averaging 18 points and 10 boards a game, while Burton shot 38 percent on three-pointers to average 14 points per game.

Duncan Hughes, Trey Shannon and Jordon Hill all made the squad from the I-70 and District 15 champion Wellington Tigers. Head coach Todd Shannon was named district coach of the year.
