Hesston College women’s basketball coach Dan Harrison announces Kelsey Unruh, a 6’1” post from Hesston (Kan.) High School, as the latest addition to the Larks program.
A two-time second-team all-league and honorable mention all-state player at Hesston High, Unruh played a key role in the Swathers back-to-back state titles the last two years. As a senior, Unruh averaged 11.1 points and five rebounds per game while shooting over 50 percent from the floor and 74 percent from the free-throw line. Aside from basketball, Unruh played four years of varsity volleyball for Hesston High.
A four-year High Honors student, Unruh will study sports management at Hesston.
“I’ve enjoyed watching Kelsey develop into a very good basketball player,” Harrison said. “She brings a wonderful shooting touch and the length to affect opponents’ shots. She’ll have an immediate impact on next year’s team.”
Unruh is the daughter of Jay and Melissa Unruh, Hesston. She attends Hesston Mennonite Church and is active in the youth group there.
