CSO Basketball All-Star Rosters Announced

Rosters are set for the 2019 CSO All-Star Basketball games to be played in May in Cambridge this year, with area schools well represented. The games will be played on Friday, May 24th at 6 and 8 PM, with the girls to start and boys to follow.

North Platte Saint Patrick’s had three girls chosen, Hayley Homan, Kaleigh Kummer and Calli Groseth along with Nick Niesen on the boy’s team. Hershey had two boys make the west team with Andrew Weitzel and Jacob Gosnell while Ashley Hassett joined the girl’s team. Also on the west boys from the area are Wallace’s Micah Swedberg, Sutherland’s Ryan Richardson and Paxton’s Jordan Callihan.

Joining Hassett, Kummer, Groseth and Homan on the west girl’s team were Sutherland’s Erica Hopping and Maywood-Hayes Center’s Jayden Widener and Paige Wood.

The coaches for the teams are Chase County’s Chris Bartels and Wallace’s Eric Miller for the west boys while Hershey’s Michael Jorgenson and Maywood-Hayes Center’s Kim Stengel for the west girls team. The full rosters for both east and west boys rosters are below.

The Cambridge School Organization (CSO) began organizing an All Star game for graduating seniors of Southwest Nebraska in 1985.  Over the past 34 years, the game has changed from a match up of Class C vs. Class D schools into a game in which teams are divided by geographical East vs West format.  The game has traditionally taken place the Friday before Memorial Day in Cambridge.  The game has featured the best senior players and coaches from the area during that time.
