A pair of former Scotland County Lady Tigers took the basketball court one final time together on Saturday in Kirksville. Recent SCR-I graduates Kaylyn Anders and Madie Bondurant teamed up to play in the 32nd Annual NEMO All-Star game held June 8th at the Kirksville Primary School.
The event, sponsored by the Northeast Missouri Officials Association pits standouts from schools from across the region such as Kirksville, Clark County, Green City, Putnam County, Brashear, Schuyler County, Novinger, Knox County, Canton, Macon, Palmyra, Highland and La Plata.
Leading up to the all-star contest, participants were treated to a movie and dinner at Colton’s Steakhouse to cap off practice time heading up to Saturday’s contest.
Bondurant and Anders suited up for the Blue team led by Chris Prewitt, who is leaving his post at the head of the Brashear program to take over as Athletic Director at Schuyler County next year.
The team struggled to find enough offense on Saturday, falling to the Red team by a final of 60-46. Audrey Fohey of Palmyra led the team in scoring with 12 points. The Red team had a pair of 16-point scorers in Laken Hugenberg of Canton and Kennedy Flanagan of Highland.
In the boys game it was Kirksville’s Austin Pennick who stole the show, pouring in 29 points to lead the Blue team to a 97-79 victory.
