Jordyn Tuck of St. Paul High School has earned Labette Bank Athlete of the Month from the Southeast Kansas area for her play over the month of March.
Tuck, a senior guard, helped the St. Paul High School girls basketball team to a third place finish this season in 1A-I as they beat Hoxie 31-30 in the consolation game. The Lady Indians finished with just one loss all season, falling 45-35 in the 1A-I semifinals to Waverly. Tuck led her team at 14 points per game on the season and earned first team all-state honors from Sports in Kansas. She also scored 40 points over three state tournament games to lead her team and finish fourth total in 1A-I tournament scoring. St. Paul also finished as a top four team last season as they took fourth place at the 2015 1A-I tournament, but Tuck missed the season with an injury.
St. Paul, led by head coach Doug Tuck, the father of Jordyn, was the top finishing team this season in the Southeast Kansas Area. Girard boys and girls both took fourth in 4A-II, while Labette County girls took fourth in 4A-I.
