W&M, JMU mine WCAC for verbal commits

If a player can stand out in the rugged Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, that's pretty much all we need to know - that player must be really good.

So William and Mary and James Madison are no doubt thrilled to have three players from that ultra-rugged league give pledges to the CAA schools. According to All-Star Girls Report, the Tribe received commitments from Marlena Tremba, a high-scoring guard from Paul VI Catholic, and Kasey Curtis, a 6-2 center also from Paul VI. Both players are in the Class of 2013.

JMU is the choice of 2014 guard Chania Ray of St. John's College High.

Tremba, who transferred to St. Paul from South Lakes after her freshman year, averaged about 18 points per game as a junior and teamed with super sophomore Ariana Freeman to lead the Panthers to their sixth straight Virginia Independent Schools state title (It's a testament to the quality of the WCAC that the state champs finished just fourth in the own conference). Tremba splashed seven 3-pointers in the title game, and she knocked down eight bombs in one game earlier in the season. She finished the year as a first-team All-WCAC selection, joining among others Good Counsel guard and Virginia-bound Faith Randolph, the conference player of the year..

Curtis, who averaged about 7 ppg on the loaded Panthers, figures to be groomed to fill the void created by Tribe post standouts Emily Correal and Jaclyn McKenna, soon-to-be four-year starters who will be entering their final season this November.

William and Mary now has three verbal commitments for the Class of 2013. Latrice Hunter, a 5-7 guard who is already the leading scorer in Norfolk Christian history, chose the Tribe in April.

Ray, a 5-9 combo guard who has also earned raves for her defensive ability, was a third-team All-WCAC pick as a sophomore. Her Cadets finished second to Good Counsel in the WCAC.
