• VU signs four, including Brown — Vincennes University women’s basketball coach Harry Meeks has added four recruits to the 2019-20 roster.

The Trailblazers’ incoming class includes guard Amani Brown of Terre Haute South; guard Elena Aznar of Zaragoza, Spain; forward Macy Michels of Teutopolis, Ill.; and center Codou Ndour of Tivaouane, Senegal.

“I think they will mesh well with who we have,” said Meeks of the signing class. “We have three returning all-district players [Fess Hawkins, Jhala Henry and Jaynice Stovall] along with returning freshman Reeva Hammelman. If these players come in here and do what they’re supposed to do, we should have a pretty good basketball team. 

"It’s been a while since I had four kids returning who I thought could really play. With these four sophomores and then you add the freshmen to the mix, I think every player on the team can play. We hope to have a good year and be a challenge to the Wabash Valleys of the world.”

The 2018-2019 Trailblazers finished 23-8, losing to top-ranked Wabash Valley in the district championship game.
