Our number four sports story from Iowa Mennonite School takes us to the hardwood at Hillcrest Union where IMS senior Suzanna Yoder posted one of the best careers in the history of the program, adding her name to the record books. Yoder ranks in the top five in school history in 11 different categories. When it comes to scoring, Suzanna Yoder leads the program all-time in points in a season with her senior year seeing her score 578 points, topping Angela Bock’s 1997-1998 season of 545 points. Yoder’s junior season also ranks third on the all-time season list with 489 points and her sophomore season ninth. Her 27.5 points per game her senior year is most in program history, beating her own 22.2 point per game mark established in her junior year. Her 18 points per game from her sophomore season is eighth on the all-time list. In Yoder’s senior season she knocked down 75 three point goals, most in school history for a single year, breaking her own school record of 65 from her junior season, in her sophomore year she made 31 long balls, seventh most in IMS history. She set the school scoring record twice in her senior season with a 40 point game in a 54-48 win over English Valleys and then again with 45 in a 63-61 win over Highland later in the season.
Yoder ranks second all-time in career points with 1,566, behind only Angela Bock, a 1999 IMS grad. Her 179 made three point goals in her career puts her second all-time also behind Bock.
