I’m currently on vacation with my family and I promise no basketball but today is an exception. My phone alerted me more then usual and the news broke that Seely-Roberts family (Moroni, Malachi and Head Coach Heather Roberts ) are headed to 6A Lincoln HS (OR). Lincoln is in a tough PIL league with the likes of Jefferson, Grant and Roosevelt.
Last season, Head Coach Heather Roberts lead Yamhill-Carlton to their first State Title since 1992. YC defeated Cascade Christian 52-48. She was named State Coach of The Year.
6’5 Sophomore Moroni Seely-Roberts was named State Player of The Year. Moroni was rated the best collegiate player at the 3A level and now has an opportunity to compete at the 6A level. He averaged 29ppg, 12rebs, 5apg.
6’7 Sophomore Malachi Seely-Roberts was named First Team All State! Malachi played point forward for YC and can score on all three levels. Malachi averaged 15ppg, 40% 3PT, 8rebs , 8asts and 2.5 spg.
Before the news broke, Yamhill-Carlton was the unanimous preseason favorite to win back to back State Title.
