â€śAncilla is a good opportunity for me to play ball at the college level and continue my education,â€ť said Beard. â€śIâ€™m excited and ready to work hard.â€ť
Beard, a 5â€™2â€ť point guard, has been a starter for the Lady Kats the past two seasons and has led the team in minutes per game. She also led the team in assists during her senior season.
â€śArienne is a great fit for our program,â€ť said Ancilla basketball coach Stephanie Beason. â€śSheâ€™s very patient with the ball and can handle the heat in pressure situations. Sheâ€™s also very solid defensively and as a point guard likes to push the ball. I expect good things from her over the next two seasons.â€ť
