WILBURTON, OK (April 9, 2013) – Wilburton senior Kelbie Moon will trade her purple and white for blue and gold on the basketball court next year. Moon signed her letter of intent on Monday to continue her academic and basketball career at Eastern Oklahoma State College.
Moon said there were three main reasons why she chose to join the Lady Mountaineers and stay in the community of Wilburton.
“It’s the three Fs – family, friends and fans,” Moon said. “The Eastern program is looking great right now and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Wilburton High School Coach Eddie Muse said he was very proud of his player.
“She’s really worked hard and she deserves this. She’s an outstanding young lady and we’re glad she’s staying in Wilburton so we can watch her play,” Muse said.
Moon averaged 15 points, eight rebounds and two steals per game during her senior season at Wilburton.
Eastern Head Coach Amber Taylor said Moon has demonstrated excellence in the classroom and on the basketball court.
“Kelbie will bring a degree of versatility to our program in that she is strong and tall enough to play inside, but has the skill set of a guard. We look forward to her transition to the collegiate level,” Taylor said. “I want to thank Wilburton High School and the Moon family for raising such a fine young woman.”
