Yankton Bucks senior Cooper Cornemann has been awarded the “Spirit of Su Award” for Class Double-A Boys Basketball. The honor is given out each season to a boys and girls senior in each class based on character, community involvement, and on the court achievements. Cornemann averaged 15 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals per game for the top-seeded Bucks this season. He will attend school and play basketball at South Dakota State University this fall. Cooper is the only male student from Yankton High School to win the “Spirit of Su Award”, and he joins older sister Ketty Cornemann and Heather Nelson as Yankton recipients of this honor.
