Lansing trio — Joe Schneider, Clay Young and Roy Clayter — awarded KVL first-team accolades
Thanks to its first state championship final since 1950, it should come with little surprise that the Lansing boys' basketball team is reaping multiple awards.
On Tuesday, five Lions were recognized by the Kaw Valley League for their play this season.
Junior guard Joe Schneider, as well senior forwards Clay Young and Roy Clayter, all received first-team all-Kaw Valley honors.
Schneider led Lansing in scoring with an average of 13 points per game and 311 total points on the season. He also was the team leader in assists with an average of 3.1 per game.
Young was third in scoring with an average of 8.8 points per contest and third in rebounding with four rebounds per game.
Clayter was the team's second leading point-getter with 8.9 per game. He also led the Lions in rebounding with 111 total rebounds this year and in steals with 43.
During Lansing's state tournament run, Clayter averaged 18 points per game, a team high.
Junior guard Khalil Bailey and senior guard Lucas Mein both earned honorable mention nominations.
Bailey was second in rebounding, averaging 4.4 per game and 7.5 points per game. Mein averaged 5.5 points per game and had 26 steals on the season.
The Lions finished first in the KVL with a 12-1 record and ended the year 22-2 overall, the best record ever in school history. The squad lost 46-40 to undefeated Shawnee Mission South in the 5A state final.
