GAYLORD — Conrad Korte already put up a good night.
Two more blocks would've made it an exceptional night.
Korte's banner day for Gaylord St. Mary led to a dominant 50-21 win over Indian River Inland Lakes. The Snowbirds allowed 12 points through three quarters.
Korte, the 6-foot-4 senior center, scored 17 points with 11 rebounds and eight blocks.
His eight blocks and 11 rebounds were one of the best defensive performances St. Mary has had in at least a decade, according to official stat keepers. Two more swats, of course, would have made it a triple-double. The Michigan High School Athletic Association begins keeping records of single-game blocked shots at 12.
Brody Jeffers just missed a double-double himself with nine points and nine steals. Gavin Bebble had 14 points.
St. Mary (3-0) plays Pellston Tuesday.
