Isabel Metzger, Garrett Torres Named Mustang Courtwarming Royalty

Isabel Metzger was named North Nodaway Courtwarming Queen Friday following the games between North Nodaway and South Holt. Garrett Torres was named Courtwarming King. They were crowned by last year’s queen, Brittany Wood along with Little Mr. & Miss Hopkins, Owen Coleman and Zoey Phillips.

Isabel is an exchange student from Germany. Her host parents are Steve and Samantha Brown. She is one of two in the area; Sophia Obermuller is a German exchange student who goes to Worth County.
Other candidates were Madison Thompson, Bethany Herndon, Peyton Coleman, and Augustus Hoepker. Junior attendants were Bailey Tate and Cole Bird. Sophomore attendants were Ashley Thompson and Cody Wood. Freshman attendants were Karlie Emery and Tyler Bix.

Since it was the final home game of the year for the Mustangs, the seniors from both the boys and girls squads were also recognized. Playing in their last home game for North Nodaway for the girls were Bethany Herndon, Isabel Metzger, Kelsi Oberhauser, and Madison Thompson. For the boys, August Hoepker, Dakota Smyser, Peyton Coleman, and Garrett Torres were honored.

The girls looked like they would be in a dogfight as South Holt had a player, Sadee Prussman, go off on them for 16 points in the first half. However, Prussman said something late in the first half that the refs didn’t care to hear and got a technical foul; she did not return in the second half and North Nodaway pulled away for the 57-44 win. Peyton Coleman, despite facing double teams all night, posted 29 against the Knights, but the Mustangs came up one point short at 64-63.
