(Bonne Terre, Mo.) Few players in southeast Missouri can fill up a stat sheet the way North County boys basketball standout Karter Kekec can, and as a result he has been named our Parkland Health Mart Pharmacy Play it Forward Athlete of the Week.
Kekec led the Raiders to a 3-0 record last week which included a victory in the first round of the Class 4 District 2 Tournament.
Across those three games, the junior guard averaged 22.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 4 assists.
Raiders head coach Jimmy Palmer says Kekec plays a huge role in the success of the team.
While Kekec shines for North County in their games, Palmer says it’s his effort in practice that sets the tone for the entire team.
As part of the Parkland Health Mart Pharmacy Play It Forward Athlete of the Week, Karter Kekec will receive a t-shirt, a certificate, and the Parkland Health Mart Pharmacy will donate $25 to a non-profit of his choice.
