The Memorial Sea-Hawks women’s basketball team has landed one of the top local high school players.
Carly Stevenson of the Holy Heart Highlanders has committed to the Sea-Hawks for the 2019-20 Atlantic University Sport season.
A 5-10 guard, Stevenson played for the province’s under-17 team last summer, averaging 11.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game at nationals.
“Carly plays with an unmatched toughness and grit, which I had the pleasure to see this past summer while coaching her on the U17 team,” said Sea-Hawks coach Mark English. Stevenson hopes to eventually study medicine at Memorial.
Meanwhile, the women’s volleyball team has received a commitment from Erica Rafuse for 2019-20.
A native of Harmony, N.S. who attends West Kings District High School, Rafuse was a member of the Tigers Volleyball Club which won the 2017 Nova Scotia provincial championship, and helped her high school team win the 2018 provincial championship.
“Erica is strong at the net, has excellent court sense, and strong decision making skills,” said Memorial coach John Slauenwhite. “Combine those attributes with her athleticism, and Erica will find success in the AUS.”
