Lady RedHawks open season Nov. 3 with home game versus Grace College

Returning starters, strong recruiting class boost expectations for an exciting season

The Indiana University Northwest Lady RedHawk basketball team will take the floor Tuesday, Nov. 3, in a season opener against Grace College. The game begins at 7 p.m. in the Savannah Gymnasium.

The 2008-09 season was the most successful in the team's history. The Lady RedHawks set a new record for season victories and qualified for post-season play in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association, where they also won a first-round game.

A strong mix of returning players and new recruits have positioned the team for another exciting season. In addition to returning 6-foot-4 sophomore forward and USCAA All-American Sharon Houston (Merrillville), the Lady RedHawks bring back eight players from last year’s team, including: sophomores Juliette Keller (Kouts), Nina Wills (Bishop Noll), Ashley Michalski (Lake Central), and Kym Daniels (Hammond Morton); juniors Jenelle Kapelinski (Lake Central), Erica Baran (Hammond Morton), and Hannah Cohen (Lake Central); and senior Jessica Jenkins (Knox).

Joining them is a strong recruiting class put together by head coach Ryan Shelton. It includes Megan Leal and Justine Jones, both Calumet grads; Vicki Campos (Hammond Clark); Amanda Pennington (River Forest); and 6-foot-4 Gary West Side product Ish Sha Terry.
