My name is Lauryn Merritt. I attend Maconaquah School in Bunker Hill, IN. I am a 6'1 forward with a dream to play basketball at the next level. I run cross country and track and play basketball for my High School. I am a freshman and earned my Varsity letter for the 2020 cross country season and ran as one of the top 7 runners on our team. I have played travel basketball for IGB and Indiana Flight the past two summers, but am very excited to be offered a spot to play for Always 100 for the 2021 season. I am an A Honor roll student in school and have had to work extra hard in my studies as I am dyslexic! That has not stopped me from earning high grades and obtaining a 3.9 GPA.
I am a 5th generation corn, soybean and pig farmer and love working on our farm. I've developed a strong work ethic through having my own livestock to take care of everyday, helping my dad with planting and harvest seasons and working in the barns to take care of our pigs.
I have developed time management skills from balancing basketball, cross country, track, school and my extracurricular activities. I am the Vice President of my freshman class, a 7-year member of 4-H, Treasurer of the Miami County Junior Leaders, Fellowship of Christian Athletes. National Junior Honor Society, middle school Student Council President and active in my church youth group.
I am a very coachable player and my coaches have told me that I work hard but I can make the team laugh when everyone gets stressed!
