PHS duo receives All-State honors

Three Seniors named to All-Conference 

Powell High School juniors and basketball standouts Jenni Ebersberger and Kalei Smith were each named to the Class 3A All-State basketball lists.

Ebersberger was third in the 3A West with 11.5 points per game and first in all of 3A with 3.6 assists per game. Defensively, Ebersberger’s 2.9 steals per game ranked seventh in 3A. All three marks were tops on the Panthers.

Smith finished second in 3A scoring with 20.8 points per game. He shot 51 percent from the field, including 38 percent on 3-pointers. Smith led the 3A West with 1.3 blocks per game, was second in 3-point percentage and fifth in overall field goal percentage. He was Powell’s third-leading rebounder with 4.8 a game. He was also named to All-State as a sophomore in 2013.

Smith broke the Powell High School boys’ record for most points in a game (36, set in the 1979-80 season) when he scored 39 points against Cody on March 7.

Seniors Shawnea Harrington and Brooke Lensegrav were named to the girls’ All-Conference list while senior Hayden Cragoe was named to the boys’ list.

Harrington averaged 5.5 rebounds per game to lead Powell and rank eighth in the conference. She was Powell’s second-leading scorer with 5.8 points per game while also averaging more than one assist and steal per game. Her 0.7 blocks per game were good for eighth in the West.

Lensegrav averaged 4.4 points, two rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game. She was second on the team from beyond the arc (33 percent) and third from the foul line (67 percent).

Cragoe was Powell’s do-everything grinder. The three-sport athlete grabbed 5.9 rebounds a game to tie for first on PHS and averaged 2.3 assists per game as Powell’s top distributor. Cragoe’s 2.1 steals per game were best on the team and fifth in the conference. He was Powell’s third-leading scorer with 7.9 points a contest and was second in blocks on the team and in the West with 1.1 a game. Cragoe would often defend the opponent’s best player.

The PHS girls finished 19-9 overall and 10-4 in conference. They beat Newcastle 46-33 to claim third place at the Class 3A State Tournament in Casper March 13-15.

The Panther boys ended their season at 18-11 overall and 10-4 in the West. They finished fourth in Class 3A after going 1-2 at the state tourney.
