Menominee Indian High School’s Isaiah Moss earned a unanimous spot on the Central Wisconsin Conference-East Division first team to cap off his senior season.

Moss was one of four players to make the first team unanimously.

Bonduel junior Noah Weier and Wittenberg-Birnamwood seniors Mason Meverden and Michael Miller were all second teamers, while Bonduel freshman Ryan Westrich landed on the honorable mention list.

Moss averaged 20.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.8 steals and 0.6 blocks for the full season.

In 14 conference games, the averages were 19.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 2.2 steals and 0.5 blocks for the Menominee Indian guard.

“It’s really special for me to win unanimous first team, because I’ve always put the time and dedication into the game of basketball,” said Moss. “I want to thank my teammates and coaches for always encouraging me. To end my most memorable season I’ve had in high school basketball with unanimous will be an achievement I’m forever grateful for.”

Menominee Indian finished 6-8 in CWC-East play this winter.

Weier turned in averages of 13.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.8 blocks this winter.

In conference play, the junior was even better in a few areas — tallying 14.4 points, 6.1 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.9 blocks.

“This summer, the goal is doing everything I can to become a more consistent player that does whatever is needed to win. With that being said, it will motivate me individually to be the hardest worker in the room and gym at all times.,” said Weier.

Westrich instantly became a focal point for opposing teams to slow down. The freshman big man still averaged 13.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, 0.5 steals and 0.7 assists across the season.

In conference action, Westrich tallied 13.2 points, 8.4 boards, 1.7 blocks, 0.6 steals and 0.7 assists.

“Receiving honorable mention as a freshman is an honor,” said Westrich. “There was a lot of great talent in our conference this year, so it was nice to be recognized. I was fortunate to play with a great team.

“I think that receiving honorable mention is great for my confidence as a younger basketball player, and it will motivate me to achieve even higher goals for the future.”

Bonduel tied for the second-most wins in the conference this year, going 9-5.

Meverden led the Chargers in points, rebounds and steals as a senior. He averaged 15.1 points, 7.8 boards and 1.3 steals to go along with 1.9 assists a contest for the full season.

In conference play, Meverden averaged 15.2 points, 9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals.

“It is special to be named second team all-conference this year because I’ve been playing basketball since fourth grade and this shows that all the time I put into the sport paid off in my senior year,” said Meverden.

Miller led the Chargers in scoring in conference play with 15.4 points per game. He also had 3.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks per conference game.

Overall, Miller averaged 12.6 points, 2.9 boards, 2 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.4 blocks per game.

“It’s special to me because I’ve been playing basketball my whole life and worked a lot, and I had high expectations for my senior year so it feels good to get second team,” said Miller.

Behind Miller and Meverden, Witt-Birn went 7-7 in CWC-East games.
