With four players committed to Division 1 programs, St. John Vianney will look to use its depth to get back to – and win — the championship game, which they have lost two years in a row.
Brelynn Bellamy, who averaged 9.9 points per game and is a feared defender, according to NJ.com, signed with William & Mary. Sajada Bonner, who signed with Quinnipiac, is a versatile score who averaged 12.8 points per game last year, according to NJ.com. Sarah Karpell, a point guard, averaged 7.8 points per game and signed with Fordham.
Finally, NJ.com expects Rahmena Henderson to get into the starting lineup after playing an important bench role last year. She signed with Sam Houston State.
While there isn’t a specific player who wows experts enough to give a high-star rating, the group of them is versatile and deep. St. John Vianney should be right in the mix of things once again.
