Three Sunlake High boys basketball senior standouts are heading to the college ranks, shortly after guiding the team to one of its best seasons in program history — a 17-8 mark and Class 7A district semifinals appearance during the 2019-2020 season.
Jordan Golden, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard and team captain, signed with William Penn University, a nationally ranked NAIA Division I program in Oskaloosa, Iowa.
Golden led the Seahawks in points (11.4) and rebounds per game (6.2) this past season. He was named the Sunshine Athletic Conference East (SAC) Defensive Player of the Year this season, and earned first team All-Conference honors for the second time.
Meanwhile, Sunlake co-captains Joshua Brent and Justin Lucena both signed with Ave Maria University, an NAIA Division II program in Ave Maria. Brent, a 6-foot-3 small forward, was third on the team in points (9.8) and second in rebounds (5.8) per game this season, and earned second-team All-Conference honors.
Lucena, a 5-foot-9 point guard, led the Seahawks in assists (3.8) and steals (2.7), and was second in points (9.9) per game this season. Lucena overcame various injuries throughout his career and was voted “Mr. Seahawk” by his team.
