OKEECHOBEE — Some of the key players in Okeechobee High School boys basketball’s memorable 26-3 season this winter have been honored by the Treasure Lake Conference.

The Tribe’s Silas Madrigal was one of three Brahmans who earned recognition by the conference. Madrigal, who led the team in scoring, was named All Conference Honorable Mention.

The senior guard averaged 10.8 points per game. He also led the squad in field goal percentage (59%) and 3-pointers (45).

Okeechobee brothers Malcolm and Markeze Kelly were named First Team.

Okeechobee had two 13-game winning streaks, which included a victory against Suncoast in the Class 5A-District 13 championship. The Brahmans reached the 5A regional finals where they were eliminated by Pembroke Pines Charter.
