On Sunday, they stepped up to lead the Air Force All-Stars to a 128-100 win over the Marines in the 2018 Ohio Varsity Senior Shootout presented by at Ursuline College.

Shenkel scored a game-high 26 points while Ramey finished with 19.

Independence’s Kyle Stefanski finished with 15, Chardon’s Joe Scerbo scored 12 and Fairport Harding’s Kasey Carrabine pitched in with 11.
