I noticed when Tri State was pressing at the end of the game, Piatz trusted her to inbounds the ball as well. She will be a good one. Abby Duchscherer is her name. Kindred also has 2 other seventh graders that played some JV this year. So when Piatz hangs it up at the end of the year, he's not leaving the cupboard bare. They may struggle some next year, but will still be top 3 in the region I would guess.


I may be wrong but doesn't Kindred have a group of seniors that are crazy athletic? Reinke and Hiatt, solid three starters, Erickson who plays quiet and rebounds and led them to state in VB, odegaard very athletic and going on to play DII soccer etc. I think they've done pretty well over the years, and from what I understand, were an undefeated team from 7th grade on up. The 7th grader does a good job off the bench and is a great addiction, but I wouldn't slight the senior leadership and talent that has gotten this team where it is.

I didn't see anywhere where the poster did this. This thread is about young players.

Big Cat you are correct. Kindred has a great group of seniors starting with Reinke who has signed to play for UND, Hiatt who will most likely play basketball somewhere, Erickson is athletic, Kyra Braaten is a very good athlete for her size and Odegaard is very athletic as well. Odegaard missed all of last season and I believe over half of this season, she is just getting back to playing, so that has limited her court time. Flip is correct in saying in no way am I slighting any senior leadership. The topic of this post is Young Athletes, and I was following up on some comments on the Kindred 7th grader. I believe from what I have seen that she is one of the 3 best overall players on that team which in my opinion doesn't mean I am slighting Senior leadership. Big Cat, I am not sure what great addiction the 7th grader is that you are referring to. " [b]The 7th grader does a good job off the bench and is a great addiction,"[/b]

Funny guy!
It was an opinion based on what I know about the kindred team and whats gotten them to the dance. I agreed with everything in your first ever post about the seventh grader. When you open up the ranking of an athlete on a team, you do invite a little discussion. I'm sorry if that poured something in your cornflakes. If I were to say that a talented eighth grader out of Enderlin (which there is) or a very good seventh grader coming up in Parkrivers system was one of the top five athletes on the team, I would be sure sure get some discussion as well. I would suggest That if you do not want that type of discussion, keep it to the talent of the kid and not
Her ranking in the team. JMO!

Kidder county started a pretty good ball handler and defender in a 8th grader..Oakes started an 8th grader that can shoot the 3 ball and freshman that put up a lot of points..Lamoure has the youngest holen that's a darn good point guard.

After watching the game today, I concur...The 7th grader is one of the best on that team. Wow, impressive...And the 8th grader from Watford isn't too shabby either. Also very impressive...

Many objective Kindred folks consider Duchscherer to already be the best all around player player on the team.

I would say that many fans across the state witnessed Duchscherer's ability in this tournament. She played with a great senior class of leaders at Kindred and proved she is one of the best 3 overall players. She was awarded the play of the game Friday night, player of the game in the Championship and was on the All Tournament team. The earlier post was not to take away anything from the rest of the team, but it was my assessment of her abilities based on watching her play some games this season.
