Lady Eagle point guard commits to Florida Memorial

Yelena Thomas was tempted to leave Bronson Middle High School to join forces with a more talented girls’ basketball squad. The standout point guard, who averaged around 18 points a game for her final three years of high school, has finally chosen another school to play ball at, but this time it’s on a college scholarship.

On March 8 in the BMHS media center, Thomas held her official signing ceremony, revealing she’s committed to Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens.

The Lady Lions compete in the NAIA level in the Sun Conference and are in the midst of their third straight winning season.

Thomas’ family and coaches spoke at the signing, and Thomas herself, became emotional when she thanked her teammates.

“You all really did help me this season, even though I fought with you like crazy,” Thomas said. “I think y’all are a big part of this too.”
