Jessica Laemmle, a 5-foot-4 guard from Mercy Academy, has committed to the University of Louisville’s women’s basketball team as a preferred walk-on.
Laemmle was a second-team All-Sixth Region selection last season after averaging 9.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. She shot 80.2 percent from the free-throw line and 25.9 percent from 3-point range as the Jaguars finished 22-12.
Laemmle was one of five Mercy seniors to announce signings and commitments Thursday, joining Julia Hodge (soccer, Morehead State), Caitlyn Ritsch (cross country, Hanover), Brianna Wolken (cross country/track and field, Western Kentucky) and Madi Woods (basketball, Indiana University Southeast).
