Sophomore Cody Damman was mostly a distributor as a freshman last year for Baxter’s boys’ basketball team.
This season, Damman moved into the Bolts’ primary scoring role and he finished sixth in the Iowa Star Conference South Division in points per game. And that helped him earn a spot on the all-conference first team recently.
Joining Damman on the Iowa Star Conference South Division all-conference teams were junior Rory Heer and sophomore Carson Scroggins. Heer was a second-team selection, while Scroggins earned honorable mention recognition.
The all-conference teams were released recently after all teams were eliminated from the postseason.
All-conference selections are based on statistics inside conference play only.
