New head coach Michelle Clark-Heard has continued her in-state recruiting trend.

The Lady Toppers received a commitment Friday from first team all-state guard Kendall Noble, less that a week after receiving a commitment from second team all-state guard Leasia Wright.

Noble, from Perry County Central High School, averaged 14.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 5.7 steals and 2.5 blocks as a senior.

She’s already familiar with Diddle Arena, as she played in six straight state tournaments there. 

Noble played for Breathitt County High School for four years and Perry County Central for her final two.

“I just really liked the new coaches a lot,” Noble told the Louisville Courier-Journal. “Everybody knows I don’t like to talk, but I could talk to her and felt really comfortable with her.”

Noble chose WKU over Middle Tennessee and Xavier.
