Former Skyline basketball phenomenon Kelly Huey can add the title of “Team MVP” to her list of accolades during her career at Concordia University in Portland, Oregon.

Huey is actually receiving this honor for the second year in a row. “It’s really an honor to win MVP. I’m just grateful to my teammates and coaches for making it possible,” Huey said. The five-foot-six guard led the Concordia Cavaliers in assists (4.7), rebounds (6.0), steals (2.0), and free throw percentage (.836). Huey also set a new single-season record at Concordia for her 36.6 minutes played per game during the 2012-2013 season. She was also one of three Concordia players to start in all of the 28 games that season.

The former Team MVP of the Skyline College women’s basketball team reflects on her experiences since being at Concordia.

“Playing at Concordia has been really fun. I love all my teammates and it has just been a really good experience for me. I can’t wait for next year,” Huey said. She also spoke of the challenges of next year. “Players are bigger and stronger and it takes a lot of hard work,” Huey said.

As mentioned in the last issue, Huey was also a recipient of the 2012 California Community College Athletic Association Female Scholar Athlete of the Year. If basketball wasn’t enough, she is currently working on a nursing degree. The very busy student athlete has been recognized time and time again for her consistent 4.0 GPA. She is on schedule to graduate by 2015.

“Five years from now, I hope to be working as a nurse,” Huey said. ”I don’t know exactly what specific field yet. But I think I’ll learn more about that in the next couple of years.”
