Thunder Basin’s McKale Holte Reaches 1,000 Points
Thunder Basin senior McKale Holte is one of the latest Wyoming High School basketball players to join the 1,000-point club.
Holte accomplished the feat in the final game of the regular season on Feb. 24, 2022, versus cross-town rival Campbell County. Fitting, the sharp-shooter reached 1,000 points on a three-pointer.
Holte is a three-year starter and an all-state award recipient for the Bolts.
During his senior season, Holte is averaging 13.4 points per game and shooting 47 percent from the field. He makes over three 3-pointers per game, one of the higher marks in Class 4A. Holte shoots 42 percent beyond the arc and is 74 percent at the free-throw line.
His career-high is 32 points, which came against Evanston earlier this season, on Dec. 9, 2021. In that game, Holte made a career-best 9 three-pointers on 11 attempts. He’s also made six triples in a game, two other times this season.
Holte has helped Thunder Basin to an overall record of 21-3 and the top seed from the East Conference at this year’s 4A state basketball tournament.
Last year, Holte averaged 15 points per game and shot 44 percent from the floor as a junior. He was a key piece in Thunder Basin’s runner-up finish at last year’s 4A state basketball tournament.
As a sophomore in 2020, Holte averaged 15.9 points per game and shot 55 percent from the field. The Bolts were 19-6 that season. He played in 14 games as a freshman and averaged 2.1 points per game.
Congratulations to McKale Holte for surpassing the milestone of 1,000 points.
He joins his senior teammate, Deegan Williams, who also reached 1,000 career points earlier this season.
