Jackson Kirkbride, Rylie Jo Ward make All-Stars
May 19, 2022
When you are good people notice. Two of the Burns Broncs basketball program players have been selected to the Panhandle Prep program All-Star teams. On Wednesday, Panhandle Prep announced the rosters for the All-Star basketball games on Friday, May 27 at Gering High School. The girls' will kick off the doubleheader at 5:30 p.m. with the boys immediately following.
The name is a bit deceiving as they are not a Nebraska only organization. They pull players from Torrington, Hayaninis, Southeast, Lingle-Ft Laramie, Burns and a host of other locations.
This year one boy and one girl were selected for the all-star team and one coach from Burns.. Coach Barry Ward was selected to be one of the coaches for the Red Girls-Home team. And no surprise his daughter Rylee Jo Ward was selected to play on the Red Girls-Home team.
For the boys side Jackson Kirkbride was selected to be on the Red Boys-Home team. Both players were stand out players during the season with both players getting Regional and State awards.
Congrats to both players and Coach Ward for this amazing accomplishment.
