Suring High School senior Mitchell Stegeman was recently named to the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association’s all-star game after his outstanding basketball season and career.

“I am extremely honored,” Stegeman said. “I think it’s really cool that I get to play with the best players in the state. Since I was little, I’ve always dreamed of playing in the infamous JustAgame Fieldhouse, so this truly is a dream come true for me.”

Stegeman enjoyed a standout season on the court to cap a strong high school career.

The Suring player averaged 18.9 points per game, leading the Marinette & Oconto Conference. Following the season, Stegeman was tabbed the M&O player of the year.

He helped the Eagles reach a Division 5 regional final game.

Stegeman will play on the Division 5 White team, which faces the D5 Red team June 15 at 9 a.m.

Helping fill out the White team is Brandon Row (Rio), Bryce Fuerlinger (Columbus Catholic), Cade Lamb (Almond-Bancroft), Caleb Dotseth (Clayton), Jared Payne (Seneca), Jarek Nelson (Prairie Farm), Jarred Mandel (Columbus Catholic), Noah Kollock (Almond-Bancroft) and Samuel Meerstein (Green Bay NEW Lutheran).

Jon Bussewitz, of Turtle Lake, and Nick Schradle, of Clayton, will coach the team.

In addition to playing in the all-star games, the athletes need to raise at least $500 each through fundraisers to benefit Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer.

The five WBCA girls all-star games will be played June 14, with the boys games all taking place the next day.
