WALLACE — Wallace High School senior Zack Welch was recently selected to the 1A Division I All-State First Team by the Idaho Statesman.

Welch, a 4-year varsity player, recently wrapped up a brilliant final season where he averaged 24 points, 4.6 assists, and 2.5 steals per game.

He helped guide the Miners to a 17-4 record, including wins over Kellogg, Genesis Prep and St. Maries.

This season had many highlights for Welch, from big-time wins to highlight reel dunks, but nothing could top what he did on Jan. 30.

Playing on the road at Clark Fork, Welch went off for 52 points against the Wampus Cats, including shooting 14-for-17 from the 3-point line and even managing to break the rim on a dunk.

Welch’s 52-point night is the all-time WHS single game scoring record.

Welch was on his way to leading the Miners to their first state tournament berth in a decade when he and his squad ran into the 1A Division I Player of the Year Spencer Schumacher and his eventual state champ Prairie Pirate team, falling 58-50.

Last month he was the only Silver Valley player to play in both the District I All-Star Game and the North Idaho College Idaho All Star Game and he was named game Most Valuable Player in the former after scoring the game’s first 14 points and finishing with 18 total.

One of the all-time great Wallace Miners, Welch has committed to Spokane Community College next year to continue his playing career.
