Lewis Signs National Letter of Intent
Sophomore Jallisa Lewis has signed a national letter of intent to attend Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph next year. She is the third Lady Roadrunner to make her college plans official.
“I chose Missouri Western because it has a great atmosphere,” said Lewis. “The campus is a lot bigger, but it felt like a positive home place at the same time.”
Lewis averaged 5.1 points per contest. She pulled down 5.1 rebounds per contest, second highest for the team, while helping lead her team to an 18-12 record during her sophomore campaign at SFCC.
“Jallisa can play inside or outside,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “She can shoot the three-point shot and rebounds the ball well. She can cause some matchup problems for other teams. She runs the floor well. Missouri Western is getting a player who can do a little bit of everything.”
Lewis had a memorable career at SFCC with a Region XVI tournament championship as a freshman, followed by only the third national tournament appearance in program history. The Lady Roadrunners also picked up their first victory at the national tournament in program history. Lewis finished her two-year career with a 47-18 career record.
“My most memorable moment was going to the national tournament my freshman year,” said Lewis. “We won the Region XVI tournament, and we got to cut down the nets and go to nationals.”
Lewis plans to major in child psychology.
“I hope she does well,” said Bucher. “We will be following her progress at Missouri Western; we wish her the best of luck.”
