Head Women’s Basketball Coach C.K. Calhoun announced July 22, a group of nine newcomers into her program for the 2013-14 season.

These nine women will join a group of nine returnees for Calhoun.

Shenandoah is coming off of a 12-win season that saw the Hornets reach the ODAC quarterfinals in Calhoun’s first season at the helm of the program.

The nine players represent six different states, including the university’s only student-athlete from Illinois and just its second from Maine.

The class has an average height of nearly 5’8″, boasts three guards, one forward and four combo players.

Emily Heiston, from Luray, and Morgan Wolfe, from Hedgesville, W. Va., are the local players in the class.

“This pre-season roster gives us a great deal of depth and should make our tryout period very competitive,” Calhoun said. “We had a good initial run in the ODAC last year and the players that eventually join us are going to help us take the next step in our development. I know they can’t wait to get started at Shenandoah both academically and athletically.”

Calhoun added that additonal tryout information will be available for general student population by the first week in September.

Shenandoah opens up the 2013-14 season on November 15 at the Randolph-Macon Tip-Off Classic.
