Kigar, who also earned Honorable Mention All-Area honors as well, averaged a team-high 7 RPG to go along with his 1.3 steals/game.
Kigar helped lead his team to a 14-7 mark overall and a second place finish in the OK Bronze with a 8-2 record. He scored a career-high 29 points against Northpointe Christian on January 29.
Kigar was also very successful in the classroom where he maintained a 3.6 GPA. He was on the Honor Roll at FHE every semester and was also a National Honor Society member both as a junior and a senior.
Caleb on why he chose Cornerstone: "I've been following Cornerstone athletics for all my life. I've attended numerous camps in my younger years and countless games. Now the chance to be a part of the team that I've watched is unfathomable. I am so grateful for this opportunity. I've been seeking the Lord's guidance ever since I've started submitting applications and after wise counsel and family input, I felt led to sign on with Cornerstone and continue my education there."
Coach Elders on Caleb: "Caleb is terrific young man. He's a class act both on and off the court. It's great to see how he's developed into a good basketball player since coming to our camps a few years back. Caleb is a very hard worker and he knows how to compete. We're excited that he has chosen Cornerstone to further his education and to play basketball.
Kigar, who is undecided on a major at this point, is the son of Kurt and Jennifer Kigar.
