Hononegah senior signs with Wartburg College
Coming soon to a hospital near you could be Hononegah Indians senior basketball player Jordan Johnston.
The four-year varsity starter from Roscoe has been a big reason why the Hononegah Indians have been so successful the last four years. As head coach Jason Brunke mentioned during the signing event on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2024, “Jordan came into the program and has grown up as a player as I have grown as a coach.” Coach Brunke spoke of what Wartburg College is getting in Jordan. He mentioned her leadership, her selflessness, her competitiveness and her team-first desire and work ethic.
When asked what she loves about basketball, senior Jordan Johnston said “I love the team aspect of it, the selfless act, I like being that person who makes that good pass for my teammate to score.”
Jordan is an academic all-NIC-10 athlete and carries a 4.0 + GPA, all the while playing on a 18-3 and #7 ranked Class 4A girls basketball team.
