Monmouth University women's hoops receives commitment for 2008-2009

Heather Reynolds from Corning-Painted Post West N.Y. High School has accepted a women's basketball scholarship to Monmouth University for the 2008-2009 season her high school coach, Bill Pierce, said Friday.
Pierce said Reynolds, a 5-7 combo guard, averaged 13.5 points, four assists, and shot 41.2 percent from 3-point range (43 3s) for the 18-4 Vikings who won the STAC (Southern Tier Athletic Conference championship) last season.
Pierce said Reynolds was also recruited by LaSalle, Sacred Heart, Central Connecticut State, and Canisius, among others.
He said the campus, the coaches, and the prospect of playing in Monmouth's planned new athletic facility, helped influence Reynolds to play for the Hawks.
""She thought the campus was beautiflul, the area was appealing, and she and the coaching staff clicked very well,'' Pierce said.
""That's (new arena) very appealing to a kid being recuited,'' said Pierce.
Reynolds is expected to be part of a rather large Monmouth incoming class in 2008-2009 with the team expected to lose at least four seniors after this coming season.
