Twins Mike and Mark Keller of Oostburg highlight a talented incoming recruiting class for coach Mark Boyle and the Marian University Sabres.
The Keller twins played integral roles in helping Oostburg capture the Central Lakeshore Conference championship while also earning a trip to the WIAA Division 4 State Tournament.
Joining the Kellers in the Sabres’ incoming recruiting class are Jordan Beck of Lomira, Jake Coenen of Kimberly and the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley and Dickie Knar of Mundelein High School near Chicago.
“I think these guys will definitely help,” Boyle said. “We’ve struggled the last two years so we needed to bring in some really good players.
“The Keller twins give us a lot of versatility as they are both able to play the two-through-four positions. We have a group of really good incoming kids who will be great additions to our program.”
Mike Keller, a 6-foot-5 forward, led Oostburg in scoring at 13.7 points per game while also averaging 4.7 rebounds per game. He earned unanimous first-team all-league honors while helping the Flying Dutchmen to a 26-1 overall record and a 16-0 mark in league games.
Mark Keller, also a 6-5 forward, averaged 7.0 points and 2.7 rebounds per contest for coach Kevin Bruggink and picked up second-team all-conference honors.
Beck, a 6-1 guard, received unanimous first-team all-conference recognition in the Wisconsin Flyway Conference after averaging 18.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game for coach Tyler Witkowski.
