Additional commitments will be posted as our remaining '14 players make their respective choices.


CONGRATULATIONS TO ANNA ROSS (WESTHILL)!!


Anna Ross has signed her letter of commitment to play for the Division I University of Pennsylvania Quakers after a storied AAU and High School career.  Ms. Ross garnered double digit scholarship offers at the Division I level and was pursued by schools in major and mid-major conferences including the ACC, Big East, AAC, Big Ten, Colonial, Atlantic 10, MAAC, MAC, America East and NorthEast Conference, among others. In the end, Ms. Ross' focus was always on academics and the education she could receive while playing basketball. She chose UPenn over finalists Lehigh and Colgate after thorough  consideration and deliberation. Coach Mannion said of Ms. Ross: "I love all my players but Anna Ross was special both on and off the court. She is the epitomy of what we work to achieve with our players: character, class, intelligence and, of course, exceptional talent. Anna Ross was simply the most talented player ever to wear a Wildcats' uniform. She will do great things at UPenn AND in life."

Good luck, Anna, though you will be missed, we cannot wait to see you play at the next level!!

CONGRATULATIONS TO FUTURE LEMOYNE DOLPHINS JOANNA DOBROVOSKY (SKAN) AND AUSTIN STEVENS (SO JEFF)!!



One is good but two is better! The LeMoyne Women's Basketball staff understood that very well when they offered and received commitments from not one, but two Unity Wildcats this year: Joanna Dobrovosky (Skaneateles) and Austin Stevens (South Jefferson). Besides obvious talents, both players bring something that college coaches want more than anything else -- a winning attitude and tradition. Ms. Dobrovosky was a four year starter for Skaneateles and helped transform them from perennial also-rans into Class B Sectional contenders for four consecutive years. On the AAU circuit, Ms. Dobrovosky proved herself one of the top true post players in the Northeast outplaying the very best competition from Richmond to Maine!-- Similarly, Ms. Stevens has done nothing but win in her four years with legendary Coach Pat Bassett and the South Jefferson Spartans. Joining the Unity Wildcats for the first time this past season, Ms. Stevens quickly showed why she is one of the top players in all of Section 3. Talented, tough, smart and hardworking, Ms. Stevens' abilities and attitude will translate into great things for LeMoyne Women's Basketball over the next four years!

Joanna and Austin join two former Unity Wildcats on the LeMoyne roster next year, Tessa Pucello and Maggie Brown. Good luck to all and we look forward to getting to all your home games to watch the rise of LeMoyne to National Championship caliber.

CONGRATULATIONS TO MELISSA FUMANO (WEST GENESEE)!!

Melissa Fumano will take her talents to the Big Apple (NYC) for the next four years having signed a Letter of Intent to play for Coach Bet Namovsky and the Queens College Knights. Ms. Fumano was pursued by both Division I and Division II colleges. Having visited and experienced numerous college campuses, Ms. Fumano knew immediately following her visit to QC that it was the place for her. "I loved the players, I loved the coaches and I loved the campus. After my visit was complete, I knew where I wanted to go and it was easy to make my final decision." Ms. Fumano tops off a Unity Wildcats class that includes three D-I/D-II players as well as a number of top Division 3 players.

Good luck, Mel!! You will always have a special place in the hearts of all Unity Wildcats who coached you and who played with you. No one could ever ask for a more talented player and incredible teammate.
