PAINESVILLE, OHIO – The Lake Erie College women's basketball team added two members to its 2010 recruiting class when Chloe Srebernak (Grosse Point, Mich./Grosse Point South) and Kiarra Jones (Twinsburg, Ohio/Lutheran East) signed national letters of intent to play for the Storm during the spring signing period.
The pair joins recruits Chrissy Delaney (Lewis Center, Ohio/Olentangy) and Jodie Jindra (Sunbury, Ohio/Big Walnut) who signed in November during the early signing period.
"Chloe and Kiarra will both challenge for starting spots and add great depth to our perimeter positions. Both are big, defensive guards that will help us as we enter the GLIAC next year,” said head coach Bob Booher. "Equally impressive are their academic skills that will add to the quality of academic standards that we set for our women's basketball program."
Srebernak averaged 13.5 points, five rebounds and 3.5 assists per game as a senior in high school, earning All-Michigan honors in 2009-10. The 5-foot-9 guard shot better than 43 percent from three-point range and was a three-time All-Macomb Conference selection. She also earned All-Detroit Metro East First Team honors as well. In the classroom, the daughter of Joe and Helen Srebernak carried a 3.8 grade point average was was named to the Michigan State All-Academic Team.
“Chloe is a solid left-handed guard who likes to attack the basket, but has shown great ability to shoot the three,” Booher said. “She'll add another dimension to our perimeter game.”
The 5-foot-7 Jones averaged 13.8 points, eight assists and three rebounds per game at Lutheran East, earning all-district mention three times during her high school career. She was also selected as a Greater Cleveland Basketball Coaches' All-Star. Jones captained both the basketball and volleyball teams. The daughter of Mike and Angela Jones graduated at the top of her class after carrying a 3.9 GPA.
“Kiarra is a strong, physical guard who likes defensive challenges and excels at passing the ball,” said Booher.
The Storm is coming off its best season, posting an 18-9 record and finishing ranked 10th in the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region.
