  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Women’s Basketball announces signing of three to national letters of intent

Drake Harlett

Bowling Green Women’s Basketball earlier Wednesday afternoon announced the signing of three players to national letters of intent.

Johnea Donahue (Fort Wayne, Ind.), Lauren Gerken (Findlay, Ohio) and Kendal Moxey (Centreville, Md.) announced their indication to join the Falcons starting in the 2024-25 academic year.

For Donahue and Gerken, they will be true freshmen coming in, while for Moxey, she will come in as a junior.

At Snider High School, Donahue averaged 12.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, four assists and and 5.6 steals per game in 2022-23. She also was a part of the team’s sectional and regional titles.

“Johnea is a fierce competitor who plays like she has something to prove every time she steps out on the floor,” said head coach Fred Chmiel. “She has an incredible defensive presence, and will match our style of play perfectly.”

Gerken makes her way from just down the road in Findlay from Liberty-Benton High School.

A  two-time Blanchard Valley Conference Player of the Year, Gerken in her career averaged 19.8 points, nine rebounds, and over two assists and three steals a night, shooting 58.5 percent from the field. During last season, Gerken also became the fastest player in school history to reach the 1,000-point mark for her career.

“Lauren is like a utility knife,” said Chmiel. “She’s a three-sport athlete, and is exceptional in all three sports, but we love her as a basketball player. Her versatility, her perimeter ability her size and her post presence all will make her a tremendous asset to our team.”

In Moxey’s case,, a 6’4 forward currently is a sophomore at Daytona State College in Daytona Beach, Fla. Prior to that, Moxey was a graduate of Queen Anne’s County H.S., where she averaged 25.6 points and 16.6 rebounds per game as a senior, and was named the Bayside Conference Player of the Year for a second-straight season.

Also in her high school career, Moxey finished with 40 consecutive double-doubles.

“Kendal is an imposing post player who will bring tremendous size and power to our post position,” said Chmiel. “She has made big strides in just the last few months, and has become a great player on the junior-college level at Daytona. Her numbers speak for themselves, and we couldn’t be more excited to have her join us here at Bowling Green.”
