The Midway College basketball program will be combining a healthy mix of veterans and newcomers for the 2012-2013 campaign.
With the graduation of three-time First Team All-KIAC scoring guard Whitney Odom, The eagles will look to veteran Captains Whitley Henry (Sr.) and Erin Lucas (Sr.) to fill the scoring and leadership roles this season.
Junior College transfers Gena Taylor, Star Armstrong and freshmen Day Rivera and Tara Hill have been added to the mix this season. Hill is a 1000 point and 1000 rebound, standout forward from Model High School (Richmond, KY). Rivera a redshirt freshman (Clermont, FL) will provide speed, scoring, and rebounding to our forward position. Taylor and Armstrong come from athletic and competitive JuCo atmospheres and will provide scoring, speed and athleticism to the squad this season.
Returning nine players and adding just three, has allowed the team to progress at a much faster pace. As expected, Midway will also need to remain healthy to continue improvement during a very demanding season. Once again, the Eagles will face several ranked and talented opponents.
