The Class AA coaches have selected their basketball honors teams, and Glacier’s Cohen Kastelitz leads the list of Kalispell honorees.

Kastelitz, a 6-foot-3 senior who led Class AA in rebounding at 10.6 a game, is the lone local All-State pick, as signified by his selection to the Western AA first-team. 

Kastelitz ranked sixth in the league in scoring at 12.9 points per game, and everyone ahead of him was first-team all-Western AA and All-State as well.

The list includes Helena’s Tevin Wetzel and Jaxan Leiberg, Missoula Hellgate’s Easton Sant and Butte’s Hudson Luedtke. Luedtke and Sant were chose co-most valuable players on offense for the league.

Wetzel and Lieberg were 1-2 in the conference in scoring, at 17.1 and 16.2 points per game. Luedtke, a sophomore, was right behind at 15.8. 

Sant averaged 15.3 points a game and he and his co-MVP each averaged 5.9 assists per outing.

Wetzel, Lieberg, Luedtke and Sant were all All-State a year ago as well.

Glacier and Flathead both had players get honorable mention: junior guard Liam Ells for the Wolfpack, and junior forward Lyric Ersland for the Braves.
