The unquestioned leader of the Central boys basketball team’s journey to a WIAA Division-2 sectional final was senior Tre’ Williams.
So it makes sense that Williams also brought home the Southern Lakes Conference’s Player of the Year honor as well.
Williams, who closed out a stellar high school career with 430 points — good for a 16.5 per game average — was joined on the first team by Wilmot junior Latrell Glass. His Central teammate, junior Cooper Brinkman, was a second-team selection.
In addition to his scoring average, Williams knocked down 54 3-pointers and 79 free throws and grabbed 66 rebounds (2.5 per game). He added 47 assists and 25 steals.
Central finished 20-6, including a loss to state-bound Waunakee in Saturday’s sectional final.
Glass, who helped Wilmot to a three-game postseason win streak that included a regional title and trip to the sectional, where it lost to Central, totaled 433 points (17.3 per game). He made 46 3-pointers and 82 free throws and tallied 101 rebounds (4.8 per game), 56 assists and 43 steals.
Wilmot finished the year at 8-17.
Central juniors Jaeden Zackery and Nic Frederick and Wilmot junior Jeremy Bruton received honorable mention.
Wilmot senior Delaney Sjong was voted to the All-SLC first team.
Sjong scored 322 points (13.4 per game), hit 61 free throws and seven 3-pointers, snared a team-high 202 rebounds (8.4) and totaled 33 assists and 43 steals.
Union Grove senior Janelle Shiffler was Player of the Year.
The Panthers finished 16-8 and won a regional championship before losing to Milton in a sectional semifinal.
Voted to the second team were Wilmot senior McKenna Stanek and junior Morgan Zenon. Wilmot senior Devin Coleman and Central senior Lindsey Kimpler garnered honorable mention.
