QUINCY, Ill. / CANTON, Mo. (WGEM) -- The tri-states had a pair of high school seniors take the next step in their respective futures on Thursday.
Quincy High's Jordan Fletcher inked her national letter of intent with Missouri-St. Louis.
Fletcher credits her ability to get a shot at the NCAA Division II ranks to becoming a more complete player. This past season Fletcher showed off her skills not only on the block, but outside as well.
"This year coach (Demond) Dade helped me open my game up to driving to the basket and shooting. Getting the chance to do that has really helped me get comfortable with it. I've always been able to do it but not necessarily in a game and this year I definitely op ended up," Fletcher said.
QHS head coach Demond Dade says Fletcher's ceiling remains high and her potential is untapped.
"In that training I saw that speed. I had our center (mid-fielders) playing a lot of through balls into him to try to see that speed because I heard about that before he had come (to visit). It was definitely a big reason why we signed him," Ordell explained.
Hoewing says he picked the Wildcats due to the comfort level he felt with the coaching staff.
