Player Name:Shannon Smith
High School: East Union High School
Comments from Coach Gilcrist: I am very excited to have Shannon coming into this program next year. As quiet as she is, I was amazed at the compliments she received from area coaches. She has a knack for finding the ball off the glass and it's difficult to coach her length on the inside. Shannon has the potential to accomplish anything she wants in life and in the game of basketball; I am blessed with the opportunity to help her along the way.
Player Name: Heylee Horn
High School: Winterset High School
Comments from Coach Gilcrist: Heylee is the other returner from last year’s squad. A regular starter, Heylee has shown the ability to play a very nice offensive game. After battling injuries last year, I am dedicated to helping Heylee improve her confidence and tenacity so that she can move on to play at the four-year level. One of the nicest persons you will ever meet, Heylee is a competitive bulldog who wants to win. I am hopeful her hard work and dedication will rub off on her teammates and she can help lead us this year.
Player Name: Kristine Smith
High School: Webster City High School
Comments from Coach Gilcrist: Kristine comes to us from Ellsworth Community College. After a stellar high school career at Webster City, things did not work out for Kristine at Ellsworth. I am hopeful that SWCC and the tight-knit family of the basketball program will help make this year an experience she will always remember. With the ability to play anywhere on the floor, Kristine has the potential to really blossom in our up-tempo style of play. She can shoot, ball-handle, and guard…what more could I have asked for? Even though it will be her first year at Southwestern, pressure will be on Kristine to take on a leadership role right away.
Player Name: Jamee Miner
High School: Elkhorn (NE) High School
Comments from Coach Gilcrist: Jamee may be short in stature, but even in film you can see her tenacious style of play and fearless competitive attitude. Jamee came highly recommended by her high school coach and other coaches in the Omaha area. She played in a winning program at Elkhorn, and Coach Wragge is well known for producing college-ready basketball players every year! At the point guard position, we will look for Jamee to not only get us into our offense and guard the other team’s best players, but we will look for her to bring a winning tradition to SWCC.
