COLUMBIA, KY Heidi Huffman, a 5-5 guard from Mercer County High School, signed an NAIA scholarship to join the Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team for the 2015-16 season, Blue Raiders' head coach John B. Wethington announced on Wednesday, 1 Sep 2014.
Huffman led the state of Kentucky her junior season with 104 made three-point attempts, averaging 3.3 makes per game. She averaged a team-high 14.9 points while shooting 80 percent from the free-throw line.
Comes from a great program in Mercer County
"Heidi is a very good and athletic player that comes from a great program in Mercer County under the guidance of head coach Chris Sowder," Wethington said. "She is a very good shooter with a quick release and has the potential to be a great defender."
Huffman earned first-team all-area honors and second-team all-region honors during her junior season. She also earned academic all-state honors her junior and sophomore seasons.
Helped lead her team to a 46th District Championship
She helped lead Mercer County to the 46th District Championship before falling in the 12th Region Championship game last season. The Titans finished with a 28-6 record that year.
Huffman is less than 100 points away from reaching the 1,000 point club entering her senior year at Mercer County.

Visited campus - found it beautiful, comfortable, and not to far from home
"I chose Lindsey Wilson because when I visited the campus, it was so beautiful and I could picture myself attending school there," Huffman said. "Coach Wethington was really nice and made me feel comfortable and it helps that Lindsey Wilson is not too far from home."
"We were looking for another shooter and point guard and Heidi fits our need perfectly for the position," Wethington said. "Her commitment to us makes things easier going forward as we continue to put together the pieces of the 2015-16 class."
