Notre Dame, Ind. ---- Sherisha Hills, a 5-8 guard from Tampa, Fla., has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University of Notre Dame and become a member of the Class of 2002. Hills is the first signee for Notre Dame women's basketball coach Muffet McGraw during the early signing period which runs from November 12-19. Hills, rated the third best player in the state of Florida, is 43rd on Blue Star Basketball's list of the top 80 players in 1997-98.

A two-time Class 3A first-team all-state honoree, she was named to the 1997 AAU All-America team after leading her squad to a seventh-place finish at the national tournament this summer and the Florida AAU state championship. A three-year starter at Academy of the Holy Names, she has led her team to a 90-11 mark in three seasons, while scoring 1,853 career points. Hills averaged 19.5 ppg. as a junior in AHN's 28-7 campaign in which the team finished 43rd nationally and was runner-up at the state tournament.

As a sophomore. Hills guided her team to a 34-2 record and the Class 3A state championship. During the 1995-96 season, she averaged 22.0 ppg. and was MVP of the state finals. Hills also was named the Class 3A Player of the Year as selected by the Florida Coaches Association. Hills has twice been named to the USA Today honorable mention team and has earned Hillsborough County and St. Petersburg Times player of the year the past two seasons. In addition, she was selected the Tampa Tribune's Player of the Year following the 1996-97 campaign. Hills also has garnered all-state Suncoast first-team honors in each of her three seasons.

"Sherisha is the complete package and an exciting player to watch," says McGraw, who is beginning her 11th season at Notre Dame. "She was our number-one choice and we're extremely pleased she will be joining us. "Sherisha will play the two spot on the floor, but also will see some time at point guard. She's an exceptional all-around player with no weaknesses. Sherisha is a strong offensive and defensive player, shoots the ball well from the field and is a good passer. She has a great attitude and is the type of player who will fit in well with the system we have here at Notre Dame."
