April 20, 2009
CORAL GABLES – For the second consecutive season an incoming University of Miami women’s basketball player has been named to PARADE Magazine’s Third-Team All-American squad. Morgan Stroman from Hopkins, S.C. joined was recently named to team a year after current Hurricane Shenise Johnson was a member.
Stroman, a 6-2 forward from Lower Richmond High School has recently been named to the Sporting News Prep All-American Second-Team and earlier this month played in the 2009 McDonald’s All-American game at the BankUnited Center. In addition, she ranks No. 8 nationally by the Blue Star report and No. 33 by HoopGurlz.com. HoopGurlz has Stroman as the No. 8-rated wing. Her varsity career began when she was in seventh grade.
Stroman has been named the South Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year for the third consecutive season and has led her team to four straight 4A state championships and has been named the state tournament MVP in each of those seasons.
“We are thrilled for Morgan and believe it’s a well-deserved honor. She has done just about everything a high school player can do with her four championships, Gatorade, McDonald’s and Parade awards,” said head coach Katie Meier. “Now we are excited to see her impact on the next level.”
Stroman and the rest of Miami’s incoming class will join the Hurricanes for their first team practice on October 16 as they prepare for the 2009-10 season.
