Women’s Basketball Adds Freshman Sarah Kelly to 2015-16 Roster

Kelly joins Megan Piggott as first two newcomers for upcoming season.

Kelly joins Megan Piggott as first two newcomers for upcoming season.

Head coach LeAnn Freeland and the Nova Southeastern University women’s basketball team are pleased to announced the addition of incoming freshman Sarah Kelly to the 2015-16 roster.

Kelly, a 5-9 point guard from Spring Valley High School in Huntington, West Virginia, is the school’s all-time assist leader, and nearly averaged a triple-double as a senior, at 16 points, eight rebounds, and 10 assists per game. She also shot just below 40 percent from beyond the three-point arc for a Timberwolves squad that made it to West Virginia’s Class AAA Elite Eight.

“Sarah is a skilled, athletic point guard with good size,” said Freeland. “Her court vision is phenomenal and she pushes the ball extremely well in transition. Not only does she fit into our program due to her superior skill set, but she also fits well due to her toughness, positive attitude and competitive spirit.”

As both a junior and senior, Kelly was named First Team Class AAA All-State, and she was Second Team after her sophomore year. Three times, she was named First Team All Tri-State by The (Huntington) Herald-Dispatch, and three times, she was chosen to the All-Mountain State Athletic Conference First Team.

During her four seasons at Spring Valley, the team was 80-22 with two state tournament appearances. In addition to this most recent trip, the squad also advanced to the Class AAA Final Four when Kelly was a sophomore.

“Sarah is the epitome of a team player and a winner on the court and in the classroom,” said Freeland. “We are excited to announce Sarah Kelly is a Shark.”
