Area Male Athlete: Ehnstrom inching closer to Aitkin record


Nathan Ehnstrom has his sights set for the top.

And the top is achievable for the Aitkin Gobblers’ senior.

Ehnstrom became the school’s all-time leading boys basketball scorer during a 52-50 loss to Braham Jan. 13. The guard scored 19 points to surpass Nick Sundholm’s record of 1,292.

After a few more games, Ehnstrom now stands at 1,370 career points and he’s got Emily Mehr’s school record of 1,564 in sight.
