Boonsboro star Hewett signs with Shepherd

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Shepherd University announced Friday that Boonsboro senior Jerica Hewett has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for the Rams next season.

Hewett, a 5-foot-8 point guard, averaged 14 points, 5.8 steals, 5.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and two blocks per game in her junior year at Boonsboro and was named the 2005-06 Herald-Mail Player of the Year.

"Jerica has great anticipation and reaction speed on defense and converts that energy on the offensive end by feeding her open teammates or driving to the basket herself," said Shepherd coach Jodie Runner. "She will become a great leader for our team with her intense work effort."


Hewett is a two-time, first-team selection to The Herald-Mail All-Area, All-Washington County and All-MVAL teams.
