Competition

2004-05 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award winner, Kendra Wecker, started early. At the age of twelve she drew national media attention when she beat out all the boys to win the NFL’s Punt, Pass and Kick National Finals. When she choose Kansas State University, an hour from her hometown of Marysville, Kansas, out of high school she had decided to focus on one sport, basketball. And the results were remarkable.

Wecker became the Wildcats’ and the Big 12’s all-time leading scorer with 2,333 career points and K-State’s all time leading rebounder. She also became the first Wildcat to score over 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds while setting school records for career double-doubles, field goals, minutes played and consecutive free throws.

During her senior season, Wecker was named the Big 12 Conference Player of Year, was selected to the Associated Press All-American First Team and was a finalist for the Wooden and Naismith Awards. After she graduated her number 53 was retired at both Kansas State and at Marysville High School.
