Metro Sports Report

Fuller, Tagarelli top all-region team

JC Fuller and Joseph Tagarelli from Kirkwood have received first-team honors on the NJCAA Region XI basketball team.

Taylor Olson of Kirkwood was named to the second team and Ajay Lawton received honorable mention.

Jefferson High School graduate Ky Kramer, a freshman at Iowa Central, also received honorable mention.
