JBU signs Westville Standout

Siloam Springs, Ark. (April 26, 2006) — Kenilee Langley, a 5-10 forward from Westville, Okla., has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at John Brown University. Langley was recently named to the 2006 Oklahoma Girls Basketball Coaches Association all-state team and the KURM Dream Team, and was selected Co-MVP of the Super 7 Conference.

During her senior year at Westville, Langley averaged over 13 points per game, shooting 43 percent from the field, 75 percent from the free-throw line, and 37 percent from three- point range. She averaged 6 rebounds per game and compiled 87 steals and 30 blocked shots throughout the season.

In addition to her athletic activities, Langley is also a member of the National Honor Society, 4-H, and D-FY.

John Brown head coach Jeff Soderquist said, “We are excited about Kenilee joining our basketball program. She will bring good size and athleticism to our perimeter game, and she has the ability to score from the outside, handle the basketball, and score inside as well.”

Langley will be joining a John Brown squad that will have just graduated five seniors from its 2005-06 roster. The Golden Eagles finished the season ranked 23rd in the nation and earned a trip to the NAIA National Tournament. Langley is the fourth member of John Brown’s current recruiting class. The other signees are Paige Blackburn, a 5-9 guard from Valley Springs, Ark.; Emily Bell, a 6-2 post from Berryville, Ark.; and Amber Vogts, a 6-2 forward from Newton, Kan.
