Kelley Wesp will soon be concluding an outstanding athletic career at Glen Este High School.
Kelley was a three-year varsity letter earner in cross country and basketball and a two-year letter earner in track and field. On the hardwood she was a Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye (FAVC-B) Division, all-city and all Division I district all-star. Her senior year she was selected as the FAVC-B Player of the Year. She also earned FAVC-B all-star status in cross country and at one time held school records in the 800-meters and 1,600-meters runs in track.
With all of her athletic endeavors she somehow found time to be a member of the National Honor Society and the Relay for Life event.
Saginaw Valley College, Saginaw, Mich., is Kelley’s choice of college. She plans to major in a field of health studies.
"I'm really proud of her. She has worked so hard and accomplished so much," said Kelley's mom, Kathy.
"We're excited for her," said her dad, Dale. "We're pleased with her choice of school. The games will be a little bit close for us and the coaches are real nice."
In a very superb prep athletic career, Kelley did pull up from her many highlights her most memorable moment of high school sports.
"This year was the only time we beat Winton Woods on the varsity level in basketball," she said.
Fast approaching graduation time, Kelley fondly thanked important people who contributed to her success in life and sports.
"My mom helped me a lot and has been my biggest fan. My dad never let me give up. He was the biggest coach I have ever had."
Jeff Click, head girls basketball coach at Glen Este, said, "As a freshman I didn't expect a lot from her. As she kept playing she became outstanding. She'll be remembered for her work ethic and her overall talent. She put up the numbers in all categories. She was a stat sheet stuffer. She's only the third player I've ever had who earned a full scholarship...Her mom really promoted her talents. She put a lot of leg work in to get (Kelley) a scholarship."
