Saints sign former Sturgeon standout Lauren Mills
Central Christian College of the Bible head women's basketball coach Meagan Henson on Monday announced the signing of Lauren Mills for the 2019-20 season.
Mills, a 5-9 power forward, is a 2018 graduate of Sturgeon High School in Sturgeon, Missouri. She spent the past season at Culver-Stockton College, where the former all-state infielder was a member of the softball team.
At Sturgeon, Mills was also an all-state selection on the basketball court, where the four-year letterman was instrumental in the program's district championship run in 2018. The Lady Bulldogs finished 20-9 in Mills' final season, while she went on to earn first team all-conference, all-district and Class 2 all-state honors.
"We are so excited to add Lauren to our program," Henson said. "Lauren is a highly competitive individual who strives for excellence both on and off the court. Her skill set and leadership capabilities will most certainly have a positive impact on our team and our Central Christian community."
While at CCCB, Mills plans to pursue an Associate of Professional Studies while also earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from one of CCCB's partner institutions, Hope International University.
