PAINESVILLE, Ohio—Lake Erie College women's basketball coach Bob Booher announced the addition of four new members of the program for the 2016-17 season Monday (Jan. 4).
Kendall Anderson, Farrah Benner, Josie Chaddock and Jordan Joseph will join the Storm in the fall.
The four new student-athletes join the Storm from high schools in Ohio and Michigan.
"I am very excited about our early signees," said Coach Booher. "Losing five seniors, this group has a strong defensive mentality and gives us some offensive flexability as well."
