Meese chooses Huntington

FOR RELEASE
2009-03-18
Oak Hill High School standout, Lauren Meese, has signed a Letter of Intent to continue her basketball career at Huntington University next fall. Meese, a 5’5 guard, averaged 12.1 points, 4.5 assists and 3.9 steals per game as a senior this season for the 27-2 State Runner-Up Golden Eagles. As a four-year starter, Meese helped lead Oak Hill to a 91-12 record, four conference championships, three Regional titles and back-to-back State Tournament Runner-Up finishes. She finished her career with 1031 points, 468 assists and 404 steals.

Having been a key player in a winning program, Meese had a highly decorated career. She was an All-County selection all four years and a three-time First Team All-Conference player. As a senior, Meese was invited to participate in the Indiana Top 60 workout and at the conclusion of the State Tournament Championship game, she received the prestigious Patricia L. Roy Mental Attitude award.

Huntington University basketball coach, Lori Culler, is looking forward to Meese’s contributions to the team. “There are two attributes of Lauren’s game that immediately catch your eye, her ability to defend and her work ethic,” said Coach Culler. “You can never have too many players on your roster with those qualities. As a point guard, Lauren sees the floor well and has a great understanding of the game. She also has good range which will help fill a need this year’s team had. Aside from all that she can do on the floor, Lauren is a quality individual that any coach would love to have. I expect her to not only make an impact on our program, but on our campus as well.”
