WINONA LAKE – After making a name for himself just minutes from the campus, and even having a few shining moments on it, Jake Harmon is heading to Grace College in hopes of keeping those memories going.
Harmon, a senior at Lakeland Christian Academy, has chosen Grace College to continue his academic career and also join the Grace College basketball program. Harmon concluded a fantastic career at LCA that had him set program records for games played (97) and three-pointers made (222) as well as one-game records for three-pointers made in a quarter (five), a game (eight) and a season (87). Harmon finished with 979 career points in four years of varsity ball for head coach Chris Hohm to go with 306 rebounds and 259 assists.
Harmon was a two-time Hoosiers Plains Conference First-Team selection, a three-year team captain, an Ink Free News All-Area First Team pick as a senior, and helped the Cougars to its first winning season in 13 years as a junior, as well as the team’s first-ever IHSAA sectional game win in 2018.
Active on campus, Harmon took part in Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society, LCA Student Senate and also played on the boys soccer team.
At Grace, Harmon plans to major in sports management and minor in communications.
Grace, a member of the Crossroads League and both the NAIA and NCCAA, will begin a new chapter this fall with head coach Scott Moore, who takes over the program for Jim Kessler, who guided the Lancers for 42 years.
