Manson carries Bravettes’ tradition

MILLEDGEVILLE — Carrying on the tradition set by many great athletes over the years, Baldwin High’s Shemirika Manson joins the list of other great girl’s basketball players to continue at the college level, signing a Letter of Intent with Clinton Junior College in Rock Hill, S.C. on Wednesday morning in the BHS media center.

Earning a 2014 All-Region team selection as a senior, Manson helped pace the Bravettes as a three-year starter and four-year letter winner.

“It’s clearly a great day for Baldwin Bravette basketball,” head coach Randall Owens said. “Shemirika Manson has been a great player for us, and she’s falling in a long line of great players — she’s continuing the tradition by going on and playing basketball and continuing her education at the college level.”

For the tall senior, the recruiting process was long and exhausting, but proved to be worth it on Wednesday when Manson put the ink to paper.

“It was hard, but mainly I wanted to move on to the next level and play basketball, and further my education; because, education is always important,” Manson said. “They have a great education system, and that’s what made me choose the school.”

The Lady Bears are receiving a versatile player in Manson, as she contributed to the BHS squad at different positions this season.

Manson also claims one of the team’s highest grade point averages in addition to leading the team on the court.

“Shemirika brings a lot of different skills to the table,” Owens said. “She’s a versatile player — she’s able to play inside and play outside. We counted on her to do a lot of different things for us. Her leadership will surely be missed, but more importantly Shemirika’s a great student. She has great grades and does well academically.”
