Keaten Bonderson Becomes Gehlen Catholic’s All-Time Scoring Leader

326

Keaten Bonderson has proven to be an efficient scorer over his almost three years on the Gehlen Catholic basketball team. He proved it again in Thursday night’s 76-54 win over Trinity Christian by attaining a record that hasn’t been broken in 18 years.

Bonderson broke Gehlen Catholic’s all-time scoring record previously held by Neil Rohe who scored 1,110 career points in his career at Gehlen from 2001-2004. Bonderson acknowledges that to break the record is an honor, but it wasn’t on his mind heading into Thursday night’s game.

Bonderson has become a player that defenders fear. He says his ability to be a “swiss army knife” of sorts makes him a fantastic scorer.

This group of Gehlen Catholic basketball players have been together at the varsity level for a couple of years now. Bonderson says that the chemistry he and his teammates have built has been incredible.

The goal for Bonderson and Gehlen Catholic remains clear: team success and not individual glory. Bonderson says that the ultimate goal is still to make a state tournament. Bonderson says that it will take a team effort to be successful down the stretch.

Gehlen’s record now sits at 9-3 overall and 5-1 in the War Eagle Conference following the win.
