PALATINE, Ill. – The Harper College women's basketball team is looking even stronger for the 2014-15 season, as former Cary-Grove High School star and Olivet Nazarene University transfer Joslyn Nicholson signed her NJCAA Letter of Intent to play for the Hawks.
Nicholson was a four-year varsity letter winner for Cary-Grove and coach Rod Saffert. She earned numerous awards for the Trojans, including Most Improved Player (2010-11), two-time All-Conference (2011-12, 2012-13) Northwest Herald All-Area Honorable Mention (2011-12), Daily Herald All-Area (2011-12, 2012-13), Northwest Herald All-Area (2012-13) and IBCA All-State Honorable Mention (2012-13).
Cary-Grove went 97-24 in her four years on the varsity team. She also earned four varsity letters in track and field and took fourth in state in the triple jump in 2013. In the classroom, she was a four-time honor roll student.
Nicholson comes from an Olivet program that qualified for nationals in the 2013-14 season. The 5-foot-10 small forward cannot wait to step on the court for the Hawks.
"I am looking forward to coming to Harper because of the academic and athletic support this school has to offer," she said. "I know attending Harper will benefit the way I play on the court and my overall well-being, which has left me feeling very excited."
