Women sign four

Recommended Posts

I'm kind of surprised Patterson would add two more guards next year.



     Albany, N.Y. – University at Albany women’s basketball coach Trina Patterson announced today that four student-athletes have signed national letters of intent to play for the Great Danes in 2004-05. Agreeing to play for UAlbany next season are Kelly Martinson, a 5-foot-11 shooting guard from Madison, Wis. (Madison Memorial H.S.), Sherri Mikus, a 5-foot-11 point guard from Harrisburg, Pa. (Susquenita H.S.), Kirsten Peterson, a 6-foot-4 center from Owego, N.Y. (Newark Valley H.S.), and Gia Sanders, a 6-foot guard/forward from Bowie, Md. (The Bullis School).

     Martinson was named first-team All-Big 8 Conference, second-team all-area and all-city as a junior. She averaged 11.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, plus made 39 three-point field goals as her team finished with a 10-12 record.

     Mikus, who guided her squad to back-to-back Mid-Penn Colonial League championships, averaged 14.2 points, 4.6 assists, 3.7 steals and 7.2 rebounds her junior year. She was named to the District 3 Class AAA All-Tournament Team and Big 15 second-team on last season’s 26-3 squad.

     Peterson, who has solid inside techniques, did not play as a junior at Newark Valley but will return for her senior season. She led Exodus, a Nike Elite AAU team, to the Washington, D.C. tournament title, while averaging 10.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in amateur competition.

     Sanders averaged 10.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals in leading the Bullis School to a 27-3 record and claiming the Independent School League championship for the third consecutive year. She was selected tenth by the Real Basketball Report as one of the D.C. Area’s top-70 seniors and was named all-league her junior year.

     "Overall our goal was to bring in size and athleticism to compete at the next level and this year’s class satisfies that need," Albany coach Trina Patterson stated. "We have added a point guard, a true center and a shooting guard, as well as a combination player. This group is accustomed to winning and are going to add to the development of our program."
