After five years of sinking 3-pointers and swiping steals wearing No. 12, Ezell-Harding senior Marci Sneed will become a rarity in the sports world.
Sneed will become a rare athlete who has a jersey retired while still playing for a team.
Sneed’s No. 12 will be retired and she will be presented with a framed jersey Friday night after the Ezell-Harding girls basketball teams squares off with Battle Ground Academy.
A five-year starter, Sneed has led the Lady Eagles to two sub-state championships, three state final four appearances and also eclipsed the 1,000-point mark last season.
She has picked up right where she left off this season, helping the Lady Eagles get out to a 12-1 start this season while boosting her career total to 1,247 points.
Heading into Friday night’s matchup with BGA, she’s averaging 12 points and five steals per game with 21 3-pointers made, and has only been held to single digits once so far this season.
