Essex’s Joscelyn Coleman set an Iowa five-on-five girls’ basketball record with 45 rebounds in her team’s 101-24 win over Clarinda Academy on Thursday.
The 5-foot-11 junior scored 25 points. Eighteen of her rebounds were on the offensive end. Coleman leads the state in rebounding, at 18.1 boards per game.
The 45 boards ranks fourth all-time nationally. The national record is 54, by Andrea Keehne of LaVerne (Calif.) Calvary Baptist in 1995.
