Huntington University’s women’s basketball team will see four players join the Forester program this season, including a pair of guards, a forward and a presence in the paint.

In the backcourt, both Erica Zook of Fairfield High School and Sara Doi of Penn High School will become Foresters in the fall.

In her senior season, Zook averaged 11.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 27 games. Zook shot 40 percent from the field and 31 percent from the line while connecting on 70 percent of her free throws.

Zook guided Fairfield to a 24-3 record and an unbeaten mark in the Northeast Corner Conference. The Falcons fell in the semi-state round to eventual state champions Northwestern.

Doi, meanwhile, averaged 12.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.6 steals per game at Penn last season. The 5’5” guard shot 44 percent from the field and 39 percent from beyond the arc on the year and helped the Kingsmen finish 26-2 before also falling in the semi-state.

Forward Logan Rowles comes from Norwell where she scored 16 points per game to go along with 7.8 rebounds, 3.2 steals and 2.3 assists while hitting 51.8 percent from the field. Rowles was named First Team All-Conference for the second-consecutive season in 2017-18 and was an Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association Third Team All-State selection.

Lastly, Kennedi McCoy is the lone out-of-state recruit this season for the Foresters. The 6’2” center put up gaudy stats as a senior, pouring in 25 points per game with 20 rebounds and five assists per contest.

McCoy guided Lincoln Park High School into the tournament where she posted a season-high 34 points in the first round of postseason play.

Last season, the Foresters finished 16-14 on the year and 9-9 in Crossroads League play. Huntington had just two seniors graduate from the team in guards Hailey Krewald and Brooke Yoder.
