Women's Basketball Sign Two in Early Signing Period
Nov. 14, 2011
Chestnut Hill, MA - The Boston College women's basketball program signed two high school seniors to National Letters of Intent, head coach Sylvia Crawley announced on Monday afternoon.
The two members of the class of 2016 are Nicole Boudreau from Andover, Mass. and Alexa Coulombe from Falmouth, Maine.
"Our Class of 2012 will add more championship experience. Alexa and Nicole will be two of nine Eagles who have won state titles,'' said coach Crawley of the incoming freshmen.
Boudreau, a 5-foot-9 guard, is a senior at Andover High School. She has led the Golden Warriors to two straight Division 1 State Championships. The Massachusetts Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior, Boudreau averaged 23 points, eight rebounds, seven steals and five assists per game last season. She was the ESPN Boston Miss Basketball and made the Super teams at both the Boston Herald and Boston Globe. She was also the Merrimack Valley Player of the Year.
"Nicole Boudreau has a competitive edge that I am looking for,'' said Crawley. "There are a lot of players who like to play basketball, but she loves it. She has an extremely high basketball IQ, and "go to mentality".''
Coulombe, a 6-foot-2 guard or forward, is a senior at Catherine McCauley High school in Portland, Maine. She averaged 11 points, eight rebounds and seven blocks a game as a junior. Coulombe was a Portland Press Herald All-State selection as well as a member of the All-Defensive team. She was also a member of the Bangor Daily News All-Maine team and helped the team win the Class A State Championship last season.
"Alexa is a solid player who steadies the team because she consistently does a lot of things well,'' said Crawley. "She will be able to learn our system quickly because of her IQ and work ethic. Alexa excites me because she has enormous potential and has not even scratched the surface of how good she can become."
