Gill signs letter of intent with SMWC
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College head basketball coach Deanna Bradley announced a new addition to the Pomeroy basketball team. On Thursday, May 30, Jessica Gill signed a letter of intent to join the Pomeroys for the 2013-14 season.
“It was my number one pick,” said Gill of SMWC. “I get a good education and I get to play basketball.”
Bradley believes Gill is the type of player that will flourish well with the Pomeroy team. “Jessica will fit well into our team,” said Bradley. “She has a great attitude and works very hard. I think her better days are ahead of her and we look forward to watching her improve each and every day.”
The 5-foot-8 post player from Mt. Carmel High School in Mt. Carmel, Ill. was a member of back-to-back regional championship teams in the past two seasons. She also was a part of the 32-1 Lady Aces team that included the school’s first undefeated regular season.
Gill, the daughter of David and Olia Gill, plans to study education at SMWC.

The United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) is a national organization that exists to provide quality athletic competition on a regional and national level. The USCAA focuses specifically on smaller institutions of higher learning and their student-athletes. The association believes that all athletes and programs deserve the same national opportunities as larger institutions. SMWC is an organization that can provide those opportunities.
SMWC's teams are known as the "Pomeroys." Their name was chosen in memory of alumna and faculty member Sister Mary Joseph Pomeroy, a Sister of Providence, who was a great advocate of athletics and physical fitness. The name "Pomeroy" is not so much a thing, but a spirit of athletic excellence and sportsmanship.
