Xavier High School graduate Kayla Armstrong has been elected as the recipient of the "Jack North Basketball Award," one of the highest high school athletic honors in Iowa.
The award is given by the IGHSAU to an outstanding basketball player from the previous year who has graduated. Armstrong was a member of Xavier's 2013 state championship girls basketball team and was named captain of the 2013 state tournament team. She currently attends Drake University, where she plays soccer.
"I am both humbled and grateful to have been selected as the recipient of the Jack North Award," said Armstrong. "I may be the one accepting this honor, but this award truly belongs to the great teammates and coaches that I have had the opportunity to work with and teams I have been fortunate enough to be a part of during the various stages of my career.
