The Little Greater Egyptian Conference has announced the 2018-2019 All Conference Teams and the Norris City-Omaha-Enfield Junior Cardinal basketball team represented this team very well as three players earned All Conference honors. Each coach in the LGEC is allowed to nominate up to three players in which they feel are worthy of the nomination and then the rest is up to the fellow coaches. Coaches will vote for players that are not on their own team and then the results are tallied.
No surprise with the stellar year that the SIJHSAA Class M State Tournament Runner Up Junior Cardinals had that they landed all three players nominated on the 10 person LGEC Team in Joel Hortin, Preston Long, and Cord Tucker. Long led the team in scoring averaging 13.36 points per game followed by Tucker with 10.79, and Hortin 10.64.
Preston Long took top honors in being named the LGEC MVP while Crab Orchard’s Brinnen Norris was named Captain.
