Amy Davis, a standout at Temple Christian High School, has signed a letter of intent to continue her basketball career and her education at Mount Vernon Nazarene College.
Davis, a 5-foot-7 guard from Elida, Ohio, was an Honorable Mention selection to the Lima News Dream Team following her senior season in which she averaged 15.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game.
Davis, who also participated in the USA Junior Nationals during her junior year, finished her career at Temple ranked fourth in career assists (127), fifth in career points (518), and seventh in career steals (119).
"I am excited about the addition of Amy to our team," said MVNC head coach Steve Gregory. "She is a bigger guard that has some versatility which will allow us to play her at several different positions. I envision Amy playing mostly at the off-guard positions, but she does have a lot of experience at the point guard spot and can back us up there if needed."
"Amy will also be a great representative of MVNC as a student-athlete," Gregory added. "She is a strong Christian who has done well academically through high school by being on the honor roll for the past four years."
Davis, who was named to Who’s Who Among American High School students during her senior year, has not decided what her major will be at MVNC. However, she is looking forward to joining the Lady Cougars in the fall.
"I have always enjoyed my numerous trips to MVNC," said Davis. "My parents attended there and they enjoyed it. I like the Christian outlook on campus, and I am looking forward to growing closer to God. All the students seem open and friendly, and I am excited about heading to MVNC. I am also excited about playing basketball for the Lady Cougars next year."
MVNC wrapped up its 1998-1999 season with a 16-14 overall record. The Lady Cougars also finished fourth at the National Christian College Athletic Association National Tournament at Oakland City (IN) University.
