GHC’s Shakierya McClendon Makes Basketball All-Star Team

Rising sophomore Shakierya McClendon, one of the Georgia Highlands College inaugural season’s star basketball players, played in the All-Star basketball weekend in Niceville, Fla., July 26-28. The event was sponsored by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association of the National Junior College Athletic Association

A committee composed of coaches from across the organization (Divisions I, II and III) surveyed more than 100 nominees and selected 40 players as All-Stars. Last season, McClendon averaged 11.6 points, 5.3 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 3.6 steals per game, and shot 49 percent from the floor.

The All-Star weekend included the official Hall of Fame banquet to honor the 2013 class of Alfreda Harris, Kim Ortega, Susan Summons and Gwyn Young and four games featuring the 40 All-Stars.

GHC basketball begins Nov. 1.
