LCSC women's basketball team signs first recruit for 2010-11 season
Jenni Noon, a 5-foot-10 wing/forward at Crater High School in Central Point, Ore., has signed a letter-of-intent to play basketball next season at Lewis-Clark State College, Warrior coach Brian Orr has announced.
Noon comes from the same high school as current Warrior Kenna Reiter, a junior guard. The two played together two seasons at Central Point.
Lasts season as a junior, Noon led the 1A-5A Oregon high school classifications in 3-pointers made. She earned first-team all-conference honors, was the team’s MVP, Best Offensive Player and Community Service awards winner. She also was selected to the West Coast Jamboree all-tournament team and was named both a scholar athlete and Principal awards winner. She wound up averaging around 13 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals a game
Noon has started since her sophomore season. She earned all-conference honorable mention honors as a freshman. She also won the Coaches Award, Principal Award, Community Service Award, and was selected a Scholar-Athlete. During her sophomore year, she was second-team all-conference and a Scholar-Athlete winner.
She’s a member of the school’s honor society and Sparrow Club. This season, she’s serving as Team Captain.
“We are extremely excited that Jenni chose L-C State,” Orr said. “We have watched her develop as a player for the last three years and her improvement level has been remarkable. When we first saw her, Jen was pretty much a post play who had a knack for being able to make baskets against taller players. But now she’s a player who can score in a variety of ways. She’s a very good 3-point shooter with deep range and a quick release, and to compliment that ability she can score off the dribble as well. We like her size on the perimeter and on her recruiting visit we were also impressed by her passing skills. But again what is really exciting is the fact that she loves to work on her game and if Jenni continues to improve there is no telling how good she could become.”
Noon plans to major in Biology at LCSC.
