Northwest High School News
On December 19 2014 Haleigh Vastine signed to play volleyball at Otterbein College located in Westerville Ohio, north of Columbus. Haleigh is a four-year NHS Mohawks volleyball and basketball player. Haleigh was named to the all- SOC and all-Distrcit teams three times in her high school career. Haleigh's decision to attend Otterbein included liking the coach and their volleyball program in general as well as the school's proximity to home. She said the class sizes are small, making it more like high school which will make the transition to college a little easier. Congratulations Haleigh, good luck playing for the Cardinals next year.

In the same week two Northwest High School senior baketball players scored their 1,000th point. Drew Scarberry scored his 1,000th career point at a home crowd at the game against Ripley on Tuesday, December 9. The game was stopped and Athletic Director Dave Frantz and Drew's father and high school principal, Rick Scarberry recognized him and presented him with the game ball. Drew started playing basketball in the 2nd grade playing bitty ball in the Green school district. He came to Northwest from Green in the 5th grade. Drew said "I have had a ball in my hand since I was 2 years old". He contributes his success in basketball to hard work, dedication and competitiveness. Drew said "my dad taught me my shot, critiqued it and made sure it went the right way all my life".
At an away game at Minford high school, Darbie Jenkins scored her career 1,000th point. Although an away game, it was the perfect place to score it since Darbie spent the first five years of playing basektball at Miinford. Darbie came to Northwest her 8th grade year. The game was stopped and Coach Queen and Rick Scarbery, NHS principal, presented her with the game ball. Darbie is coached by head coach Jeff Queen and assistant coaches Jamie and David Jenkins, also her mom and dad. Darbie said, "I attribute my success to my parents who worked with me a lot."
Reaching the 1,000 point milestone has become a family affair for both Scraberry and Jenkins. Drew's sister, Devan made the 1,000 point mark her senior year at Northwest, his father, Rick made his at Green High School and Drew's two cousins; Wes and Austin Loop (playing for Marshall Univ.) are also in the 1,000 point club. Darbie joins her mother Jamie who made her 1,000th career point also at Minford.
