LANARK – Eastland High School senior Meredith Janssen has committed to play basketball next school year at Highland Community College in Freeport.

Janssen, a 5-foot-8 forward, was a member of Eastland's Class 1A state championship team last year, and its runner-up squad in 2019, helping lead the Cougars to a 65-8 record over the last 2 seasons.

She averaged 7.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game this past season, and 7.9 points and 4.5 rebounds a game her junior year.

Highland, a member of the Arrowhead Conference along with Sauk Valley Community College, did not field a women’s basketball team this season because of a vacant head coaching position and a shortage of players.

The Cougars won conference and Region IV championships in 2018 and 2019.
