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.
