Remembering Barr-Reeve's Trester winners

(Continued)

Jenna Knepp who won the Mental Attitude Award at the state volleyball finals in the fall of 2013 and just happens to be a first cousin of Micah Bullock. Knepp’s dad (Devon) and Micah’s mom Wanda are brother and sister.

According to Knepp: “This award is special to me and with my cousin Micah also receiving it has added so much more. That day at the state volleyball finals I was on cloud nine with winning the championship and was not really thinking about the award and when they announced my name, I was overwhelmed. I did not see my parents down on the floor until after they announcement of my name. It was truly an amazing day for me.”

Knepp recently signed to play basketball at Indiana University East in Richmond, Indiana. Although IU East wanted her to play both basketball and volleyball but Knepp will concentrate on just basketball. Jenna also played in the East/West All-Star Basketball Game at Tecumseh.

Christian Duncheon won the Trester Award in the spring of 2010 at the Class A State Basketball Championship at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. That year the Vikings had the unenviable task of playing Bowman Academy which was in Class A but probably should have been playing in 3A with their enrollment and they also had several Division 1 players on that team.

“I remember when the game was over I looked over in the stands and noticed my parents were not in their seats where they had been during the game and wondered where they were,” said Duncheon. “Just before we were to go on the platform for the presentation of the medals they announced that I was the winner and then I saw my parents were on the floor. It was an honor for me and was glad I was able to represent the school in this way.”
