Greenwood’s Schmitz Named to WBCA All-Star Game

OnFocus – Greenwood senior Weston Schmitz will be heading to JustAGame Fieldhouse in Wisconsin Dells this July for the WBCA All-Star Game.

“It is an honor to be named a participant in the WBCA All-Star games as this event showcases seniors of each division who possess great talent and tremendous character,” Schmitz said in a press release.

The senior led Greenwood with 17.3 points per game and 8.7 rebounds per contest while helping the team to a first-round playoff win over Loyal. The Indians then faced Columbus Catholic where they lost to the Dons 53-36.

Schmitz will be playing in the Division 5 contest at 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 15. Other area All-Star Game participants will be Hunter Wright (Auburndale), Kyle Brewster (Edgar), Drew Guden (Edgar), Cade Faber (Abbotsford) and Peyton Kuhn (Medford).
