SFCC’s Harris and Wisdom sign with colleges
The final two members of the Lady Roadrunners sophomore class signed their national letters of intent May 16.
Maci Wisdom will transfer to Southwest Baptist in Bolivar and Hattie Harris will transfer to Francis Marion University, a Division II school in Florence, S.C.
The pair helped lead the Lady Roadrunners to two Region XVI championship game appearances and the program’s third NJCAA national tournament appearance, as well as the Lady Roadrunners’ first win at the national tournament. The sophomore class put together a career record of 56-11.
“Recruiters from Francis Marion saw me at the national tournament in Salina, Kan.,” said Harris. “They liked how I played. I went there on a visit and they offered me a scholarship.”
Harris averaged 6.9 points and 2.9 rebounds per contest. She also led the team in charges taken with 24. As a freshman, Harris contributed 6.2 points a game. She also pulled down 4.7 rebounds and dished out 1.7 assists per contest.
“Hattie was our captain this year,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “She came to practice and played every day. She is a hard-nosed player. She gives you everything she’s got, every time.”
Wisdom averaged 7.1 points per game as a sophomore and made 49 three-point shots. Wisdom also averaged 1.2 steals per game. As a freshman, Wisdom contributed 7.5 points per game and splashed home 32 three-point shots, second high for the team. Wisdom shot 83 percent from the free-throw line, which led the team.
“Ever since I was little, I’ve always wanted to go to SBU,” said Wisdom. “It’s close to home; it’s a great place to live. It’s a Baptist school. I am very excited.”
“Maci is another player who just goes and goes,” said Bucher. ”She plays hard every time she’s out there. I’m glad to see her get to go where she wanted to go.”
The entire Lady Roadrunners’ sophomore class has signed national letters of intent to continue their academic and athletic careers. Dahlia Booker and Arriana Walker will transfer to Lincoln University, Ebony Davis will transfer to Long Island University, and Ciara Leak will transfer to Wright State University.
