Kenmare celebrated the District 16 title Monday night with a 63-49 win over the Stanely Blue Jays in the Stanley gym.

Hunter Harris poured in 26 as the Honkers defense stymied the Blue Jays in the third quarter to open up what had been a one-point Kenmare lead at the half.

“We really seemed aggressive on the defensive end,” said head coach Kacy Keysor. “We came out with a lot of energy and ready to work.”

Keysor was a little concerned, however, when Kenmare was leading in the first half, he said his players seemed satisfied with a slight lead and gave up way too many offensive rebounds.

That may have been an issue had the score been closer as Kenmare launched 23 three-point attempts, hitting on seven. He did say it created some opportunities, but would have liked to see a higher percentage in treys.

Brett Froseth, Hunter Rodin and Kolton Jesz each had two threes and Kyler Melby hit the seventh.

Offensively, Keysor was concerned about free-throw shooting percentage. The Honkers hit 10 of 18 for 56 percent.

“When we get these free opportunities to score, we really need to take advantage of it,” Keysor said. “We need to do a better job of attacking so we can get more free-throw opportunities.”

Kenmare not only got the win to push its record to 15-6, but Harris and Rodin were named to the All-Tournament Team. The Honkers will open Region 8 play Monday at 3 p.m. in the Well at Williston State College against Trenton/Trinity Christian.

“We will celebrate the win and the accomplishment for a day and then it’s back to work,” Keysor said. “These guys just don’t seem satisfied. They still look hungry.”
