Lady Hoopster Kim Legen to Sign Nat’l Letter of Intent
MILFORD – For a sport that only accepts 3 high school players out of a hundred senior athletes, collegiate level women’s basketball is a pretty exclusive ‘club.’ Jonathan Law High School is proud to announce senior Kimberly Legen will join this elite group on Thursday (Nov. 10) as she signs her NCAA National Letter of Intent to play basketball for Holy Family University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kim will receive a scholarship to attend the Division II school, renewable each year of her college career.
A four-year veteran on the Lady Eagles basketball team, Legen will serve this year as a team captain. She was named to the SCC All-Conference Team in her junior year, as well as received the Jonathan Law MVP Award for her work last year on the team. Her work as an outstanding leader and an excellent player, as well as being a strong academic student earned Kim a spot on the SCC All-Academic Team both her sophomore and junior years.
Academically, Legen has maintained a 3.6 GPA over her four years at Law and ranking in the top 20% of her class. In fact, due to her hard work and dedication as a student-athlete, $12,000 of Kim’s scholarship package was awarded specifically for her academic performance while at Jonathan Law.
Law basketball coach Heather Saucier Borges was delighted to hear the news of Kim’s offer and couldn’t say enough about her player. “For me, as the basketball coach and a teacher in Milford, I could not be more proud to see the bridge between athletics and academics be demonstrated by such a positive hardworking Milford student.”
Athletic Director Michael Hoggatt has arranged for a press event to be held on Thursday, November 10, at Jonathan Law High School; 3:00 p.m. in the school lobby. Kim will officially sign her National Letter of Intent at that time and be available for questions.
