Seven individual varsity athletes were selected as members of the all-tournament team for The Seymour Bank Winter Classic, which was held at the Seymour High School gymnasium.
Members of the elite team were Payton Bryant of Seymour, Carter Marciniak of Springfield Lighthouse Christian, Kaden Bruce of Mountain Grove, Kaden Daniels and Terrell Gaines of Mountain View Liberty and Chadwick's Garrett Gardner and Paden Gilbert.
Gilbert also was named the tournament's most valuable player. He scored a game-high 30 points in Chadwick's 73-71 victory over Mountain Grove for the tourney's championship.
Bryant, a 5'8" junior guard, scored 35 points for the Tigers in an 80-50 win over Bradleyville and scored 67 points in three tourney games — good for an average of 22.3 points per game.
Daniels was the only senior member of the all-tournament team.
Bryant, Bruce, Gardner, Gilbert and Marciniak are juniors; Gaines is a freshman.
