Arnold named to Big 8 All Conference Team


The Washington Hatchets basketball season may have ended prematurely, but senior Cullen Arnold's performance didn¹t go unnoticed.

Arnold was the lone Hatchet named to the Big 8 All Conference Team. The Hatchets finished finished fourth in the Big 8 with a conference record of 2-4, and an overall record of 9-12.

The Hatchets fell to conference champion Vincennes Lincoln (18-7, 6-0) 42-38 in the second round of Class 3A sectional. Washington coach Gene Miiller said he has seen an improvement in Arnold in his final year as a Hatchet.

"I thought it was very deserving, he's a fine young man and a very good basketball player," Miiller said. "He (Arnold) was chosen last year as a junior. He rebounded better this year. He averaged 13.5 points and 7.5 rebounds and our best defensive player. Just a very good all around basketball player." Arnold was the last starter from the back-to-back Class 3A state championship teams led by Cody Zeller, and Miiller said Arnold has set a high standard of excellence for future Washington basketball players.

"I think Cullen set a great example for our young players, he came to practice and worked hard every day," Miiller said. "I thought he was a good role model and leader throughout the season, he'll be greatly missed next year." The Alices had two players selected to the team, Avory Mickens and Josh Sprinkle. Mt. Carmel and Mt. Vernon also had two players a piece.

The Golden Aces had Levi Laws and Reece Metcalf, while the Wildcats Brian Koch and Bryce Newman. Boonville added Evan Hendrickson and Mark Giesler was selected from Jasper.
