MONROEVILLE, N.J. – Sarah Kearney, a 6-3 forward/center from Gloucester County Christian School has signed a letter of intent to continue her basketball career and her education at Olivet Nazarene University beginning in the fall of 2013.
Kearney finished an impressive senior season, leading GCCS to a 25-1 record which included a first place finish in the regular season and the tournament of the Tri-State Athletic Association of Christian Schools (TSAACS). She was named MVP of the TSAACS and the Garden State Association of Christian Schools (GSACS), as well as for Gloucester County Christian. She also helped lead the team to GSACS state championship. On the year, she averaged 17.9 points per game and pulled down 15.6 rebounds per game.
In her high school career, Kearney amassed over 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds.
“Sarah is a model student and basketball player and is a perfect fit for what we stand for at Olivet. She had an outstanding high school career and we are excited to see her continue to grow and excel here at ONU, said head coach Lauren Stamatis.
“I loved the campus and the people,” said Kearney when asked of her decision. “The coaches and the girls on the team are really friendly and I am looking forward to playing with them.”
A National Honor Society (NHS) member, Kearney is unsure of what she will study at Olivet. She is the daughter of Steve and Kate Kearney of Monroeville, N.J.
