CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. ? Austin Peay State University's women's basketball team continued building for the 2005-2006
campaign, Monday, with the announcement that Saundra Hale, from Cincinnati, Ohio, has signed a letter of intent.
Hale, a 5-6 shooting guard, will transfer to Austin Peay from Sinclair Community College where she was the team co-
captain her sophomore year. She was ranked in the top-10 in the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference in scoring
(15.2 ppg, 6th) and assists (5.2 apg, 2nd) while adding 5.0 rebounds per game her sophomore year. She was a first-team All-
OCCAC selection and was named to the all-district tournament team and was a NJCAA All-Region XII selection.
"We are very excited about the signing of Saundra," said Austin Peay head coach Andy Blackston. "She is going to be a
great asset to our team for several reasons. First, she is an excellent shooter who has the ability to make the three-point shot
from deep. She also is a tremendous competitor and team leader. We believe she will bring experience to both the point-
guard and shooting-guard positions."
Hale spent her prep career at Cincinnati's Purcell-Marian High School, where she was a team captain for three years. She
is the Lady Cavaliers all-time assists leader, with 823 career assists, and ranks third on the school's all-time scoring list with
889 points. During her senior year, she led Purcell-Marian to a No. 1 ranking in the Greater Cincinnati Division II poll and a
district championship ? both program firsts. She was selected to the Cincinnati North-South All-City All-Star Team.
