Iola High senior Jenna Sigg (25) (left) and junior Jazmyne Honeycutt (10) (right) received postseason honors from Southeast Kansas League coaches. Sigg became a two-time All-SEK first-team selection while Honeycutt was named to the SEK third team for the 2008-2009 season.

Jenna Sigg was the engine that ran Iola High’s Fillies on the basketball court. Sigg, a 5-6 senior, was the one player other teams planned to limit when taking on Iola.
Only twice in 21 games in 2008-2009 was Sigg held under double digit scoring. She led the Fillies in scoring, in rebounds and in steals plus was second on the team in assists.
That’s why Southeast Kansas League coaches recently made Sigg one of three unanimous selections to the All-SEK 2009 Girls’ Basketball First Team. The other two unanimous selections were senior Kirsten Steinle of Independence and Fort Scott junior Jolee Sharp.
Iola’s second-leading scorer, junior Jazmyne Honeycutt earned SEK third-team honors. Honeycutt is a 5-9 forward, who was second in steals for the Fillies this season.
There were no Iola High Mustang players named to the boys’ all-league teams. The Mustangs finished 3-13 in SEK play and 3-18 overall.
Iola’s girls went 9-7 in league play and ended up 10-11 overall.
Sigg paced the Fillies in scoring for the second straight year finishing with 286 points. For her career, Sigg had 545 points which put her at No. 21 on the Fillies’ career-scoring list.
Sigg, who has been named to the All-SEK first team two years in a row, had the fifth-best season for steals in IHS history with 91 thefts. That put her at No. 10 on the career steals list. Sigg had nine steals against Pittsburg on Feb. 11, which tied her with her mother, Peggy (Martin) Sigg at fourth for most steals in a game.
As Iola’s leading rebounder this year, Sigg pulled down 149 rebounds and is 22nd in career rebounding. Sigg shot 52 percent from the field, 114 of 221, this year. She hit three three-point field goals. She was a 56 percent free throw shooter, 57 of 101. She was second in assists with 32.
Honeycutt was Iola’s top three-point shooter, hitting 18 of 53 from beyond the arc for 34 percent. Honeycutt ranks fifth on season three-point shots made and tied for seventh in career threes made with 19.
