IUK selects Farris as women’s coach

Indiana University Kokomo on Monday announced the selection of former Kokomo Lady Kat standout Whitney Farris to coach its women’s basketball team, which will begin play in the 2014-15 season.

Farris, 26, currently is an assistant coach for the men’s team.

“It’s a dream come true to coach in the town where I grew up, where I played basketball for so many years, starting with Little Dribblers at the YMCA,” Farris said in a press release. “I look forward to the opportunity to build new traditions, starting this team at IU Kokomo.”

Farris was a three-year mainstay for the Lady Kats. As a senior in 2005-06, she was the co-MVP on a team that finished with a 23-3 record after reaching the Class 4A Final Four. She averaged 9.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game, showing an all-around game.

Farris went on to play four years at Valparaiso University. As a senior, she averaged 6.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.

Athletic director Brandon Podgorski said women’s basketball is a great fit for IUK.

“There are a lot of talented players in the area,” he said. “It’s also a good fit because we have a men’s basketball team, so they can travel together and play doubleheaders. Whitney is the right person to take us into the future.”

Western grapplers roll to lopsided victory

RUSSIAVILLE — Western’s wrestling squad made quick work of visiting Northfield on Monday night. The Panthers recorded eight pins en route to a 70-12 win. Corey Hinkle (195-pound match), Donte Graham (220) and David Ryan (285) recorded consecutive pins to open the match, putting the Panthers in control. The other pins came from Caleb Maddox (126), Austin Paugh (138), Dustin Hinkle (145), Cody Stout (152) and Skylar Braden (170).

Also for Western, Mason Shepherd won by a major decision at 132. The Panthers (4-2) also won three weight classes by forfeits.
