Women's Basketball - Tue, Dec. 14, 2010
It is never offseason for recruiting, proven by the women's basketball team's signing of 6-foot post Devanny King.
The senior from Medina, Ohio picked the Tigers recently when she signed a letter of intent to continue her career in Georgetown.
"Devanny is a great fit for Georgetown College and our women's basketball program," Johnson said. "She is very aggressive on defense and has the ability in the post to step out and knock down the perimeter shot. She will be ready to play the college game because of her intense and physical play, and will immediately fill the void left by our graduating post players."
The Tigers will graduate 6-2 Emily Drees, 6-0 Ashley Prince and 6-2 Jess Slonim.
King plays for Medina High School and averaged 10 points per game in her junior year.
The two-sport star has been First-Team All NOC Conference, First-Team All Gazette, Honorable Mention Tri County Coaches Association, voted Hardest Working Teammate and an NOC Scholar Athlete. She has also earned the Rollie Platz Sportsmanship Award, is a member of NHS and a team captain.
King is entering her fourth season on the varsity team for Medina and is a three-year letterman for the Bees.
She also played lacrosse in high school, helping her team to the final four in 2009 and a state title in 2010.
