Wallaceburg’s Gabrielle ‘Gabi’ Whiteye has committed to play for the St. Clair College women’s basketball team.
Whiteye was joined by family and friends in late February at Wallaceburg District Secondary School to officially commit to the Saints basketball program.
She will be enrolled academically in the bachelor of science in nursing program.
Saints basketball officials say they are excited to add “another strong piece to the fold” with the signing of Whiteye for the 2020-21 season.
“Gabi has a great motor and competitive edge which is an excellent fit for our pressing and up-tempo style,” said Andy Kiss, St. Clair head coach, in a social media post.
“She also brings intangible qualities like leadership and community mindedness with a maturity beyond her years. We are thrilled she has chosen St. Clair and excited to add her to our basketball family.”
Team officials say Whiteye will fill an obvious need with her 5’10 frame.
Her size and length make her capable of filing roles at the guard, as well as small forward, team officials added.
Whiteye played under the leadership of Janine Day at Wallaceburg District Secondary School, along with playing for the Wallaceburg Airhawks club program.
