Jenny Eckert Zorger, a 1986 graduate of Huntington North High School and a basketball standout at Ball State University, has been named to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame as part of its 2014 Women's Induction Class.
Zorger totaled 1,365 points - a program record - at Huntington North before a record-setting career at Ball State.
In addition to career points, she still holds career steals (373) and single game scoring (35) records at Huntington North and remains among their career leaders in several other significant categories, including rebounds (479) and assists (228). A 1986 Indiana All-Star, the school's first, she helped lead the Lady Vikings to their second-ever girls' sectional championship, starting a streak of 12 consecutive sectional titles through the late 1990s. Named Ball State's Player of the Decade (1980s), the two-time all-MAC player and 1990 Conference Player of the Year graduated as the Cardinals' second all-time leading scorer (1,432) and all-time leader in steals (319) and assists (471). Playing one season in the professional Women's Basketball Association, she has remained close to the game as a high school coach, currently girls' varsity assistant at Columbia City High School.
