Jan. 10, 2019 - Eastwood Guard Hannah Owens

PEMBERVILLE, Ohio (WTVG) - Hannah Owens - a senior and three-year starter on the Eastwood basketball team - will not finish with 1,000 points in her career with the Eagles.

She is not even in any conversation for reaching a different statistical milestone.

Owens though will leave Eastwood as one of the school's most decorated female athletes.

She is a three-year captain on the basketball team and a two-time captain with the soccer team while starting every year with the school's softball team.

"She works really, really hard," Eastwood head coach Nick Schmeltz said. "I think if you can work at an elite level and play really hard, that can cover up and mask a lot of weaknesses."

There is always a large commitment to time, no matter the student or school. Owens does not really take time to sit down.

"My summer is the biggest thing," Owens said. "I take so much time out of my summer. I'm doing like three activities a day and then on top of that I am lifting, getting in open fields on my own and I think that is a big thing."

Owens will coincidentally go to Owens next school year to play softball and study nursing. She says of her three sports, basketball is her weakest.

So how does someone who readily admits to this, end up as a three-year captain on the basketball team?

"Hannah kind of was nudged into the role," Schmeltz said. "But we felt she was capable of handling it and she has obviously done a really good job with that. She was voted as a captain by her peers her sophomore year.

"She has been voted as a captain every year since."

Owens leads by example and this may be her lasting legacy here with the Eagles.

"I'm a person that wants to come in and work hard every single day no matter what if I am having a good day, bad day," Owens said. "I'm coming in working hard and I want to leave that for the girls behind because if you just work hard everyday the process of getting is just on its own."
