Wheaton High School seniors Clint Determan and Dylan Bainbridge are the Olson Oil Company Co-Athletes of the Week. Determan and Bainbridge are coming off an outstanding boys’ basketball season with Section 6A champion Border West. A season they finished last week at the Class A State Tournament.
The two seniors were consistently leaders in most statistical categories throughout their 26-4 season and that trend continued at state.
In their quarterfinal round loss to Cherry at Williams Arena last Wednesday, Determan scored 19 points, 13 of them in the first half, and added 6 rebounds. Bainbridge finished with 12 points, 3 assists and 3 steals.
In the consolation semifinal contest against Nevis at Gangelhoff Center on the campus of Concordia University in St. Paul on Thursday morning, Bainbridge led the way with 20 points, making 10-of-12 free throws, including all eight of his second half tries. He also had a team high 5 assists. Determan made 6-of-8 free throws and registered a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds.
