Albany High student-athletes announce college decisions

Albany High School girls' basketball standouts Haille Hart and Bridget Whelan announced their college decisions Monday, Nov. 13 surrounded by family, friends, teammates and coaches.

 

Both student-athletes are four-year varsity players for coach Decky Lawson.

 

Hart, a 6-foot foward/center, signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her basketball career at NCAA DIvision II Clarion University of Pennsylvania. She announced her decision during the NCAA's early signing period for women's basketball so that she could concentrate on school and the upcoming season.

 

A strong defensive presence, Hart (at right in the photo) averaged 9 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks and two assists per game as a junior last winter.

 

Whelan, a 5-foot-8 shooting guard, announced that she will attend SUNY New Paltz, one of the state's top NCAA Division III programs.

 

Whelan, who will be out until January with a knee injury, has averaged 13 points and 2 assists over her first three varsity seasons and lead the team in 3-pointers each year. She hit a school-record seven 3-pointers in a game against Guilderland during her freshman year, and holds the school recrod for 3-pointers in a season and in a career.
