2014 All-Tournament teams

The 29th Annual Lewiston Auto Warrior Club Tournament has come and gone, and what a tournament it was. There were instant classic nail-biting games, fantastic individual performances and the Lewiston-Altura girls basketball team ending a 30-game losing streak.

A wealth of memories, but when it comes to the All-Tournament team, these players stood out from both the boys and girls sides.


  • Player of the Tournament — Gach Gach (Austin): Gach’s Packers club didn’t come away with a win, but it wasn’t due to a lack of performance on the floor. Gach scored 19 points against Simley and 23 on Caledonia in two games, keeping Austin in both till the final buzzer sounded
  • Cullin Neeck (Lewiston-Altura): Neeck exploded for a tournament-high 28 points against Hope Lutheran to go along with six rebounds, and followed that up with 23 points against Mabel-Canton
  • Owen King (Caledonia): King dropped 24 points on Winona in the Warriors’ tourney opener, then had 19 against Austin
  • C.J. Woda (Heritage Christian Academy): Woda scored 14 against Fillmore Central, but exploded for 25 versus Cotter, earning him a spot in the starting five
  • Jack Stensgard (Simley): One half of the “Splash Brothers” had 16 points against Austin and then 19 against Austin in impressive back-to-back performances

  • Bella Lien (Heritage Christian Academy): Lien went for 15 points against Lanesboro and 20 on Fillmore Central
  • Gabby Bowlin (Cotter): Bowlin led the Ramblers to a win with 11 points against Lanesboro, then nearly helped pull the upset win over WSHS with 23 on the Winhawks
