Georgetown College women's basketball team went searching for an experienced player to add to what will be a very youthful laden bunch. With six seniors graduating and only one junior and no sophomores on the 2015-16 team, it was important to coach Andrea McCloskey to add another player with more college skill.
"This season we were hoping to land a junior transfer to fill that veteran role and we got a very good one in Shakela Smith. I am very thankful that MJ Baker (former coach at Bluefield College) contacted me," McCloskey said. "Baker runs a great program and has really turned Broward County Community College around. Kela brings the length and size that we need after graduating three players 6-foot or taller. I think Kela will have a great two years at Georgetown."
Joining Anna Arrastia to play Georgetown College women's basketball is Franklin County High School teammate Dasia Kilbourne.
The 5-foot-8 guard was part of a lot of success over the past four years. The Lady Flyers were 109-30 with three 41st District titles, two 11th Region championships and a 2016 KHSAA State Tournament runner-up finish.
"Dasia is a strong guard that is very versatile," McCloskey said. "She can do a little bit of everything. She was sidelined much of this past season due to an injury, but this has made her grow as a player, seeing the game from a different angle. Dasia is getting healthy and will be a great addition to our roster next season."
Justus Martin became the fourth new Tiger to sign with the women's basketball team announced coach Andrea McCloskey. The 6-foot forward from Shelby County High School helped the Lady Rockets to an 82-36 mark in four seasons with one 30th District title.
"We are really excited about the signing of Justus," McCloskey said. "Anytime you can bring in a player that has scored more than 1,700 points and 1,200-plus rebounds that is something about which to be excited. Justus has four great years of basketball ahead of her and we are really happy to have her as a part of our program."
Georgetown College women's basketball continues to put the pieces of the incoming freshman class together. Recently the Tigers signed Walton-Verona High School's Hailey Ison.
The 5-foot-8 guard helped the Bearcats to a 75-47 record over four seasons, including 46-22 in the 8th Region.
"Hailey exemplifies the term student-athlete," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "She was a Governor Scholar and KHSAA Academic All-State first team. On the basketball court she totaled over 1,900-plus points. When it comes to Hailey Ison, she is the total package."
Georgetown College women's basketball has signed another strong freshman class, including Anderson County standout Kaci Currens.
The 5-foot-8 guard helped the Lady Bearcats to a 103-30 record with four straight 30th District titles, two 8th Region championships and at least one win in two KHSAA State Tournaments. The 2012-13 team advanced all the way to the semifinals and the 2013-14 team advanced to the quarterfinals.
