Middleton defenseman Davis Bunz was named the Big Eight Conference’s Player of the Year. Five other Cardinals also received all-conference honors.

Sophomore forward Justin Engelkes and Bunz were both named first-team all-league.

Senior forward Casey Harper and senior defenseman Jake Livesy were both named second-team all-conference. And senior forward Jordan Hylbert and senior defenseman Braxton Walby were both named honorable-mention all-conference.

Bunz led Middleton in goals (18), total points (41) and points per game (1.71). Engelkes was second in points (36) and goals (16), third in points per game (1.50) and tied for third in assists (20).

Harper led Middleton with 24 assists, was second in points per game (1.55) and third in total points (34). Livesy tied for fifth in assists (18), added three goals and was a defensive stalwart all season long.

Hylbert tied for third with 13 goals, tied for fifth with 18 assists and finished fifth in points per game (1.29). Walby had 10 assists, five goals and helped key one of the area’s top defenses.

“I think it's a tremendous accomplishment for all the kids and I'm very proud to be a part of their lives,” Middleton coach Steffon Walby said of his all-conference players. “The hard work and dedication to be one of our conference elites is pretty amazing.
“The unfortunate thing is all of the kids that were left off that were easily deserving of the same accolades. All of these men were also very successful in the classroom and that's the most important thing.”
