Eagles celebrate Senior Night
By Rick Henly on Monday, March 1st, 2010 |
The Huntington Eagles celebrated Senior Night and honored their 3 graduating seniors, Jonathon Yarde, Jedidiah Landis and Rebecca Daniels. Each one desires to serve their Lord Jesus Christ with their lives.
Jonathon Yarde, son of Nick and Nanette Yarde, has participated for 7 seasons with the Eagles, and as a Senior starter contributes 4.4 points/game, shooting 33% from outside the arc and 51% inside, with 5 games of 10 points. He also hustles to pull down 2.8 rebounds/game. He is an Eagle Scout, becoming one of only a few to earn this honor at the age of 13. He went on to earn every merit badge available, making him part of an elite group of a hundred Boy Scouts to accomplish this in the One Hundred year history of Scouting. He plans to attend the Krannere School of Management at Purdue University majoring in Business Management, and has been blessed with a Presidential Scholarship.
Jedidiah Landis, son of Kevin and Kim Landis, has only participated with the Eagles for this season. He is leading his team with 29.1 points/game, 3.7 steals/game and contributing 5.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists/game. He has become the first Eagle to score more than 40 points in a game (doing so on 3 occasions), the first to average more than 20 points/game, and the first to score over 1000 points in one season. He plans to choose a college where he can play basketball and honor his Lord Jesus Christ.
Rebecca Daniels, daughter of Terry and Melinda Daniels, is in her 8th season with the Lady Eagles Basketball program. She is leading her team this season with 15.4 points/game, 12.8 rebounds/game and 2.3 blocks/game. She has had game highs of 24 points, with 8 games over 20, shooting 38% beyond the arc and 50% inside. She has also had game highs of 26 rebounds and 5 blocks.
Rebecca signed a Letter of Intent to play Basketball at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana on 11/9/09. http://www.taylor.edu/athletics/
