SPOKANE, Wash. -

The St. George's basketball team captured the 2B state title thanks to Mark Kenney, this week's Kimmel Athletic shining star.

After suffering a concussion in the 2B regionals, Kenney had to sit out at the 2B state tournament at Spokane Arena.  The senior guard ranks in the top-10 all-time in scoring at St. George's.

Despite not being able to play, Mark played a key role from the sidelines as he helped his team take home its first state title in school history.

Mark, a 4.0 student, plans to study chemistry and hopes to become a doctor, following in the footsteps of his father and older brother.
