Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College head basketball coach Deanna Bradley announced a new addition to the Pomeroy basketball team.  On Friday, May 26, Ja’Breena Gardner signed a letter of intent to join the Pomeroys for the 2013-2014 season.

Bradley talked about what Gardner will bring to the Pomeroy squad this winter.  “Ja’Breena brings great speed, quickness, and ball handling skills to our program.  Her ability to read the floor quickly is going to be very beneficial to our up-tempo style.  She has an excellent work ethic, a wonderful attitude, and we are very excited to have her as a Pomeroy next season.” 

The 5-foot-4 guard from Southport High School in Indianapolis, Ind., earned Conference Indiana Honorable Mention in both her junior and senior seasons as well as being named to the Indiana Elite South All-Star Team. 

Gardner plans to study social work at SMWC.
