Gallia Academy graduate Whitney Terry signed her Letter of Intent Monday at GAHS, committing to join the Hocking College girls basketball team next season. “I’ve played basketball since I was 12 and I love it,” Terry said. “To continue playing is an honor. I had previously decided to go to Rio Grande, but with this opportunity I can get my education and play basketball, which is something I love.” Whitney is the fourth senior off of the Blue Angels basketball team to continue playing at the next level, joining Micah Curfman (Otterbein basketball), Chelsy Slone (Rio Grande basketball) and Kendra Barnes (OU-Chillicothe softball). “Our girls are working hard and it’s paying off,” Blue Angels head coach Joe Justice said. “Whitney is a player that comes in everyday and gives it all she’s got. She works hard in the classroom and on the court, you couldn’t ask for a better kid.” Terry, who held a 2.82 grade point average at GAHS, will major in nursing while at Hocking.
