K-M’s Bigelow honored with 2018 Bob Welch Award

During the Lewiston AutHoliday Classic, Kasson-Mantorville senior Logan Bigelow earned a distinct honor by being named the recipient of the 2018 Bob Welch Memorial Award. The two-day tournament, which the K-M boys basketbalteam participated in on December 27 and 28, gives out the award for a students leadership on the court and being a great member in the community off of it.

“Winning this award means a lot to me, Bigelow said. I like being part of this community and living in a small town its a big deal to help out because everybody knows who you are. I just think its important to be a leader because you can help some people that may not be taking a path that is the right way.

On the court, Bigelow has been a big part in the KoMets success even if it hasnt shown in their record. By maintaining a positive attitude, hes been a mentor to some of the younger

players on the team whare learning to play at the varsity level.

Logan has been a great leader for us, K-M head coach Nick Pocius said. Hes maintained the positivity even though we are in a rough patch and hes helped us remain positive through these growing pains that

we are experiencing on the court.”

Bigelow is heavily involved within the K-M community not only as a three-sport athlete (football, basketball and baseball)but also through activities such as Link Crew and Big Brothers/Big Sisters. With everything involved, Bigelow is a well rounded individual that plays a big part in the community.

Logan is a great, responsible student within this school and in the community, K-M boys basketball head coacNick Pocius said. He demonstrates that by just being positive and working with our little kids that hes making this school a great place to be.
