Houston native Kylee Elmore received multiple honors Monday for a standout season while leading the Hannibal-LaGrange women’s basketball team in many statistical categories.
Elmore, a 5-foot-7 senior, was named to the all-region team for the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA). She was also announced as a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and NCCAA scholar-athlete with a grade-point average above 3.5.
Elmore, who graduated from Houston High School in 2015, averaged a team-best 14.6 points per game this season and led HLGU in assists (58), steals (45), blocks (11), field goals (154), free throws made (80), free throws attempted (102) and free throw percentage (78.4). She was the team’s second-leading rebounder at 4.8 per game and ranked second with 50 3-pointers.
A four-year starter at Houston, Elmore had a standout career in her hometown. She reached the 1,000-point plateau during the 2014-’15 season and was a first team all-conference and all-district selection. She led Houston to a 19-win season and back-to-back appearances in the district championship game.
