Green signs with Huntington

FOR RELEASE
2008-02-22
Eastbrook High School standout, Kelsey Green, has signed a Letter of Intent to continue both her basketball and track careers at Huntington University this fall. Green, a 5’11 forward, capped off a stellar basketball career by helping lead the Panthers to a Sectional Championship and an 18-6 record with her team-leading 17.1 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. She will graduate having scored 973 career points.

Green’s success on the court also garnered her numerous individual honors. She was a pre-season Hoosier Basketball Magazine Honorable Mention All-State selection and she earned All-Conference honors in the Central Indiana Conference (CIC) in each of her final three seasons at Eastbrook. As a senior, Green was chosen for the IHSAA Role Model Program because of her excellence in athletics, superior grades, outstanding character and community involvement.

Huntington University basketball coach, Lori Culler, is looking forward to Green’s contributions to the team. “We have been very thin in the post this season, so Kelsey will help fill a void. She is a banger inside and goes to the boards hard. She also has a good mid-range jumper that makes her a more versatile player. Add her work ethic and competitiveness to the mix and you have all the ingredients for a successful transition to the collegiate level. I expect Kelsey to contribute immediately and to have an outstanding career here at Huntington.”

As a track athlete, Green will be a tremendous addition to Coach Tom King’s roster in the throwing events. In each of her three seasons to date, Green qualified for Regionals in the discus and advanced to State last year as a junior. The three-time CIC All-Conference athlete currently holds the school record in the discus with a throw of 124-7. Green also placed eighth in the shot at the indoor state meet last season.

“We are excited to have Kelsey join our track and field team," said Coach King. "She is an excellent thrower that has prepared well for the college level. It will be fun having her on our team.”
