|Gilmore on Senior Night|
Gilmore, whose height is listed anywhere between 5-6 and 5-9 depending on the source, graduated from Capitol Christian High in Landover, Md. and was a three-star recruit, according to ESPN.com. The Fort Washington (Md) native played AAU ball for the Fairfax Stars.
Chipola, a junior college in the Florida panhandle, is coming off its best season in school history, finishing 33-2 with a loss in the national semifinals.
Prior to her senior year, Gilmore attended Riverdale Baptist High, and had she attended ODU, she would have been reunited with Jennie Simms, an alum of that high school. Simms and Gilmore played together on a nationally ranked Riverdale team.
Simms, a transfer from West Virginia who will be eligible for the coming season, leads what has been ranked as the top recruiting class in Conference USA. In addition to incoming freshman Maia Lee, a 6-3 forward, and Keyana Brown, a 5-11 guard, 6-2 forward Annika Holopainen will be eligible to play for the Lady Monarchs.
