Former All-Stars to be honored

A Thursday night at Memorial Gym may not sound like a big deal, but this Thursday, Rushville basketball fans will be treated to a special presentation as the Lady Lions play host to sectional rival Franklin County

Being honored on Thursday will be the Lady Lions’ five Indiana All-Stars, along with Hall of Fame coach Cinda Brown.

Coming back to be honored in Memorial Gym will be Melissa (Kilgore) LaGrange, Noelle (Young) Hall, Missi (Nelson) Hartman, Jennifer Marlow and Amanda Stull.

Being an Indiana All-Star is special honor and takes an exceptional basketball player to make the squad. Along with that individual talent, these five players also produced significant team success.

Among these five players, there are an amazing 16 sectional titles (with Melissa and Noelle sharing three titles), eight regional titles and three semistate titles.

Melissa (Kilgore) LaGrange went to Butler University and received a B.S. and M.S. in elementary education. She resides in Grapevine, Texas and works as an Administrative Assistant for Highland Meadows Christian Church. She is married to Matthew and has two children—a first-grade daughter Ellen Elizabeth (Ellie) and fifth-grade son Lucas.

Melissa’s thoughts on being a Lady Lions were “I appreciated the community support. I still fondly recall the song ‘Sweet Georgia Brown,’ Coach Brown insisting we eat oranges and our team’s matching sweaters.”

Noelle (Young) Hall attended Indiana University and received a B.S. in Elementary Education. She now resides in Greenfield and teaches fifth grade in Franklin Township. Noelle is married to Rob and has an eighth-grade daughter Taylor and a third-grade son Tate.

Looking back at being a Lady Lion, “My greatest memory of being a Lady Lion is the support of the whole community. I also feel very blessed to have worked with Coach Brown.”
