HARTINGTON — A trio of Cedar County boys basketball players and one local girl's basketball player have been deemed as some of the best in Nebraska.

Wynot’s Katelyn Heine and Laurel-Concord- Coleridge’s Noah Schutte were both named First Team to their respective All-State squads.

LCC’s Izac Reifenrath and Cedar Catholic’s Matthew Becker also made All-State honors. Reifenrath was named First Team All-State by Huskerland Prep Report and Second Team All State by the Omaha World Herald

Schutte was named alongside Ponca’s Carter Kings- bury, Centennial’s Jackson Hirschfeld, Yutan’s Brady Timm, and BRLD’s Lucas Vogt. The Omaha World Herald named these same five players to their Class C2 First Team All-State.
