From the Hillsdale College athletics Web site

Hillsdale College women’s basketball coach Claudette Charney is pleased to announce the signing of three players to National Letters of Intent for the 2010-11 basketball season.

Next year, the Chargers will welcome Lyndsay LaCourse, Allyson Lloyd and Angela Bisaro to the program.

LaCourse will come to Hillsdale from Traverse City St. Francis High School, while Lloyd and Bisaro are entering their senior seasons as teammates at Brighton High School.

LaCourse hails from the same high school as 2007 Hillsdale College graduate Lauren Fewins, who as a senior with the Chargers, was named First-Team All-GLIAC South Division.

A 6-foot forward at St. Francis, LaCourse averaged 12 points and 11 rebounds per game as a junior.

She also blocked three shots per game, and had four steals and four assists per game, making her mark as a talented all-around player.

She is entering her fourth year as a starter for the Gladiators and is in her third season as team captain.

She’s been named All-Conference three times and All-District three times in her first three seasons.

She was named to the Traverse City Record-Eagle Dream Team following the 2008-09 season, and is the 49th-ranked overall player in the state of Michigan, according to the Michigan Girls Basketball Report.

LaCourse played for the MGBR AAU-17 Team last summer, and was part of a state championship AAU-18 team.

She was also a member of Team USA at the United World Games that competed in Australia last summer, winning three out of four games played Down Under.

Lloyd is a 5-foot-11 player entering her second season on the Bulldogs’varsity team. She was a key part of Brighton’s division and district championship teams in 2008-09.

A well-rounded athlete, Lloyd earned four varsity letters in volleyball and has three so far in softball.

She was team captain for volleyball twice and helped lead her volleyball team to division and district titles this fall.

In softball, she was named First-Team All-Conference in 2009, and has already earned a total of eight varsity letters in her career.

She plays for the Livingston Sting AAU basketball team and has been named a BHS Scholar-Athlete each season of her playing career.

She is also a member of DECA and the B-KOM Mentoring program.

Lloyd’s teammate, Bisaro, is a 6-foot forward for the Bulldogs and was an honorable mention
All-County selection as a junior in 2008-09.

Brighton is in the middle of eight straight conference championships, and Bisaro was a go-to player on a team that was ranked as high as No. 2 in the state during the 2008-09 season.

I am what you think I am — a journalist. Actually when I was hired at my current job, which by the way is Sports Editor of the Hillsdale Daily News in Hillsdale, Mich., I applied for a position titled "Wordsmith", so at my best I'll call myself a writer attempting to be a wordsmith extraordinaire.
