Kenedy Van Zile
(For week of 02/24/2020)
This week’s Nicolet National Bank Athlete of the week goes to senior guard Kenedy Van Zile who set the Rhinelander High School basketball all-time scoring record on Thursday in the Hodags win over Marshfield. Van Zile was only three points away from passing Mike Flory’s record of 1,566 points entering the contest. Just moments into the contest Van Zile knocked down a three-pointer from the right wing. The contest was stopped as she was congratulated by her teammates and Coach Ryan Clark also honored her accomplishments before the game resumed. RHS would go on to defeated the Tigers 50-47 at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium.Van Zile finished with 28 points on the night and will continue to add to her record this season as RHS has one more Great Northern Conference contest against Tomahawk before they shift their focus to playoffs. Congratulations to Kenedy on such an amazing accomplishment!!
