JORDAN, PARRISH & ARENS EARN
BASKETBALL EMO ALL-CONFERENCE HONORS
Montgomery County R-2 Seniors Jerad Jordan and Cameron Parrish, and Junior Elinor Arens were elected to the 2013-14 East Missouri (EMO) Conference All-Conference Basketball Teams. This is the third season that Jerad has received this honor, the second season that Cameron has received this honor, and the first season that Elinor has received this honor.
The players who earned All-Conference Team honors are determined by a vote of the coaches of the 10 schools in the EMO Conference. The selections are based on the player’s stats and performance throughout the whole season.
Jordan was unanimously elected to the First Team this season. Also, this is the second consecutive season he has earned First Team honors (he earned Second Team honors his Sophomore season). For the season Jerad led the Wildcats in scoring with 403 points (15.5 points per game average). He also led the team in several other categories including: 3-point shots made (47); 3-point shooting percentage (38%); free throws made (138); and assists (118). He was second on the team in free throw shooting percentage (83%), and steals (46).
Parrish earned Second Team honors this season. Last year he earned First Team honors. For the season Cameron led the Wildcats in total shots made (128); 2-point shots made (101); offensive rebounds (69), defensive rebounds (147) and total rebounds (216); and steals (51). He was also second on the team in scoring with 331 points (12.7 points per game average); and 2-point shooting percentage (57%).
Again, this is the first time that Arens has received this honor. This is quite an achievement, since Elinor was unable to play the first third of the season, and saw limited playing time in the first few games she did play because of a health issue.
However, Elinor played well enough in the EMO Conference games in the second half of the season to be voted to the All-Conference team by the conference coaches. In the 17 games that she was able to play, Elinor scored 138 points (8.1 points per game average), which was the second best average on the team.
“Congratulations” to all three players on a job well done, and for receiving this recognition for your efforts!
