Memorable run

Berries reflect on their day at semistate


Jennings often was able to dribble around and through several defenders to score near the hoop.

Another key to the second-half run was Jennings got the ball in the middle of the zone to Penny where she was able to do some damage.

Said Penny, “[Logan coach Jerry] Hoover told me to get in the middle and told her to pass me the ball and hand it off to her so she could go to the basket.”

The Berries were able to advance farther than they ever have in program history despite having three first-year fulltime varsity players. They did so by seeing big improvement from Jennings and Penny as well as their teammates. Hoover has credited strong leadership and good team chemistry throughout the season.

Said Jennings, “I don’t think anyone expected us to do what we did this year, but as we went along we kept winning and I was like why not, why not keep going.”

It was the last time the Berries’ dynamic duo of Jennings and Penny will play together in a Berry uniform. Jennings is Iowa bound and Penny is getting mid-major looks from colleges in the region.

“It’s really sad because I’ve been playing with Whitney for a long time, not only high school but elementary and all that stuff,” Penny said. “So it’s going to be really hard not to have her on the court with me next year doing what she does best.

“We work really well together.”

Jennings will continue to cheer the program on. The Berries will return four starters next year.

“I think next year they still have the potential to do some good things,” Jennings said. “Everyone just needs to continue to work hard and improve because people are going to have to take on roles that they haven’t had to do.”

The Berries went 86-14 (.860) during Jennings’ four-year career. They won back-to-back sectional titles, the first regional title in school history, a Region Roundball Rumble title, a Twin Lakes Holiday Tournament title and have went perfect in North Central Conference play the last three years.
