LCSC women's basketball team signs 6-foot post Honeycutt
Ashley Honeycutt, a 6-foot post from Ferndale High School in Washington, has signed a letter-of-intent to play for the Lewis-Clark State College women’s basketball team next fall, Warrior coach Brian Orr has announced.
Honeycutt was a two-time all-Northwest Conference first-team selection and was a second-team pick as a sophomore. She averaged 19.6 points and 12.4 rebounds per game and was named her team’s Most Valuable Player for three straight seasons.
“We are extremely excited to have Ashley joining our program,” Orr said. “She’s a great rebounder and scorer and she does both with tremendous consistency.”
Honeycutt set school record for most points in a season at 510 and most points in a career at 1,380. She also helped the Golden Eagles to back-to-back appearances at the Washington State Class 3A Tournament.
“We like the fact that she can score with her back to the basket or facing up and she also has the ability to get to the foul line where she has averaged over 70 percent for her career,” Orr said.
Honeycutt, who participated in volleyball and track as well at Ferndale, was chosen to play in the WIBCA “Queens of the Hardwood” Washington State All-Star Game in March.
“Ashley is extremely competitive, likes contact, and we were also impressed with how hard she plays on both ends every single possession. She will be a great addition to our team both on the court and in the classroom and we are happy she chose LC.”
Honeycutt join the LCSC program that has had 17 straight season of 20-plus victories and has qualified for the NAIA national tournament in 13 of the past 14 seasons. The Warriors had only two seniors on the roster this past season but won the Frontier Conference Tournament title and finished with a 23-8 record.
