SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) -

“I’ve got five seniors on my team and this is the best group I’ve coached in my career,” said Ava Head Coach Nathan Houk.
It’s not only the best group – but Ava has the best player in the South Central Association in senior Sara Mendel.

Sara, an Southwest Baptist signee, can do it all. She’s scored score nearly 1,400 points during her Ava career.
