Eekhoff  was the catalyst for Western Christian’s run of three-straight state championships from 2001 to 2003.

Eekhoff was a two-time first-team all-state selection. As junior, she hit .392 while averaging 3.5 kills a set.  She was especially effective in the 2002 championship match, knocking down 15 kills with six blocks and was captain of the all-tournament team. She averaged  3.5 kills, 1.44 blocks and 1.2 ace serves a set with a hitting percentage of .450 her senior season in 2003.  Again, Eekhoff shined in the state championship match with nine kills and eight blocks while earning all-tournament team honors. She was named to the elite all-state team and was the Iowa’s Co-Player of the Year.

Eekhoff played one season at Dordt and averaged 3.8 kills and 1.5 blocks a set while her .325 hitting percentage was a school record. She earned all-region and NAIA honorable mention all-American honors. A gifted athlete, she also averaged 14 points and nearly 11 rebounds a game for the Dordt basketball team.

The trio will be inducted prior to the start of the Class 2A championship match at 4:00 p.m. Friday, November 15.
