Salina Central’s Aubrie Kierscht named Miss Kansas Basketball

When Aubrie Kierscht received a phone call from Salina Central coach Chris Fear that she had been named Miss Kansas Basketball, she was at the gym and continues to develop her basketball skills.

That hard work and determination continues to earn Kercht as she was officially presented as the Miss Kansas Basketball Tournament Saturday night at Mabe Arena. She then went on to score 16 points as a member of the blue team in a 95-89 loss to gold in the KBCA All-Star Game.

“Getting that call when you’re at the gym is just a clue there,” Kierscht said. “I think it’s definitely a blessing.”

Kierscht left Central as the Mustang’s top scorer, with 1,685 points, while also holding one-season records for points with 518, and making 3 throws with a score of 1,133. One-game scores for points with a score of 40 and 3 makings with a score of 12 as well.

Playing one last time in Salina

When the season ended at the Class 5A State Championships in Emporia, Kierscht couldn’t believe she would play a game at Salina again.

This was not the case as she was one of four girls from Class 5A schools to represent at the KBCA All-Star Game on Saturday.
