ROCKTON — Hononegah head coach Jason Brunke would have loved to see more members of his undefeated conference champions honored on the 2022-23 All-NIC-10 squad, but he understood what he was up against.

“People like to look at individual numbers and one of our biggest strengths was that we were so balanced,” said Brunke, who was named NIC-10 Coach of the Year for the second straight season after his team again went 18-0 in league play. “It can get a little tense (in the selection meeting) and everyone isn’t happy with the results. Everyone values their own players more than other teams do.”
