Republic senior Kaemyn Bekemeier is on the list of nominees for the 2023 McDonald’s All-American Game to be played in Houston in March. Bekemeier is among 772 players — both boys and girls — nominated to compete in the event. The list will be narrowed down to 24 boys and 24 girls later this month, and those selections will participate in the game March 28.
Eight girls from Missouri were nominated, including Bekemeier. She’s joined on the list of nominees by another Central Ozark Conference player — Destiny Buerge of Carl Junction.
Grace Slaughter of Grain Valley and Hannah Linthacum of Jefferson City, also opponents of Republic on this year’s schedule, also made the list.
