LAPWAI BOYS BASKETBALL

 

Head Coach

Zach Eastman, 5th Season

 

Key Athletes

Chris Bohnee, 12, Center

Quenten Kipp, 12, Guard

Joey Payne, 12, Guard

Kase Wynott, 12, Foward

Ahlius Yearout, 12, Forward

 

What more can be said about this group of seniors?  In their four-year careers, Lapwai went 99-7 with three 1A Division 1 titles in four years.  The only blemish on the resume was 2023’s overtime loss to Lakeside in the 1AD1 championship game.  The Wildcats atoned for that loss by blasting the Knights in a 2024 rematch at the Idaho Center in Nampa, winning 67-54.

Kase Wynott finished his Lapwai career as Idaho’s all-time points scored leader, and averaged 36 points per game, 13.9 rebounds per game, 9.1 assists per game, 2.9 steals per game and 3 blocks per game in his senior season.  He is now headed to Washington State to play basketball for the Cougars.

Center Chris Bohnee was second on the team in rebounds (5.4 per game) and assists (2.7 per game), showing how balanced the Lapwai lineup was.  Everyone filled their role, as Ahlius Yearout was a fantastic secondary scorer and high-flying dunker, Quenten Kipp was a lockdown defender, and Joey Payne was the floor general who could get hot from three-point range.

This four-year run from Lapwai proved the Wildcats could beat anyone, anytime, anywhere.  They never backed down from a challenge and defeated several Class 5A teams and out-of-state powers along the way.


 

SHELLEY GIRLS BASKETBALL

 

Head Coach

Jessica Carlson, 5th Season

 

Key Athletes

Brinley Cannon, 12, Forward

Kaci Lang, 12, Guard

Kaylee Packer, 11, Center

Graci Stevens, 12, Guard

Mia Williams, 11, Guard

 

The sweet-shooting Russets were Idaho’s only undefeated girls basketball team in the 2023-24 season, scorching the nets on their way to a 25-0 record.  Shelley shot 60 percent from the field, 37 percent from three, and 73 percent from the free-throw line on their way to a 68.7 point per game average.

Brinley Cannon, a BYU commit, led the way with 21.8 points per game.  Mia Williams, a junior, was second with 13.3 points per contest, and is primed for an uptick in production next season.  Kaci Lang, Graci Stevens and Sarah Kidman all averaged between 7.2 and 8.6 points per game as well, showcasing their depth.

Perhaps most impressive about Shelley’s run is that they did despite being significantly undersized.  Cannon (6-foot-1) was the only player over six feet all on this year’s team, and a team effort on the boards (along with a pressure defense that caused nightmares) allowed Shelley to hang with taller teams.
