Burger King Outstanding Student Athlete: John Glenn's Kyannah Stull
It’s hard not to root for Kyannah Stull.
The 5'4", rail-thin guard’s intense demeanor on the court makes her a winner. Her sunny disposition off of it endears her to her coaches and teammates.
“After getting to know her, I can’t imagine wanting it more for another individual than we want it for Kyannah.” said Glenn Head Coach Kyle Amor.
“It” was reaching the 1,000 point club. A feat that Stull accomplished in emphatic fashion.
The 4-year varsity player scored 16 points in the first quarter against South Bend Riley on December 2 to achieve the feat, but she wasn’t done. Stull tallied a school-record 46 points against the Wildcats to leave her mark on the record books.
“It was nice.” Said Stull, “We didn’t talk about it before the games, but it was just nice to get that out of the way so I could focus on the rest of the year.”
That focus has her Falcons team playing well, Glenn has a 15-4 record this season and has Kyannah chasing yet another, even bigger individual benchmark. Stull is just 25 points away from becoming the all-time scoring leader in program history.
“All the coaches are crossing out fingers every time she shoots, because we want her to get the record, she deserves all the success that she’s getting.” Said Amor.
However, for the always “team first” Kyannah, winning as a team means more than individual honors.
“I want to win the Bi-County tournament, I want to win the sectional and honestly, I want to see all the girls on my team grow into better players.” Said Stull.
Kyannah and the Falcons will continue Bi-County play on Thursday as they take on Oregon-Davis in the semi-final at LaVille High School, tip-off is set for 8 p.m. EST.
