Notre Dame Announces Second Recruit for 1998-99

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- Ericka Haney, a 6-1 forward from Toledo, Ohio, has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University of Notre Dame and member of the Class of 2002.

Haney is the second signee for the Irish women's basketball coach Muffet McGraw during the early signing period as Notre Dame also signed 5-8 guard Sherisha Hills out of Tampa, Fla.

Haney, rated 49th on Blue Star Basketball's list of the top 60 seniors in 1997-98. As a junior, she led Toledo Catholic Central in scoring (16.0 ppg.), rebound (12.0 ppg.) and blocks (3.0 blks.). Haney earned first-team all-state, all-city and all-district honors last season as well as being named the Associated Press District Seven Player of the Year.

A four-year captain and three-year starter at Toledo Central Catholic, she led her squad to a 23-3 campaign in 1996-97 after winning her team to the Toledo City Athletic League championship as well as district and sectional crowns. In addition, Haney helped her squad to the state regional finals.

A member of the Ohio Heat AAU team, her squad finished ninth at the nationals and second in the state tournament this past summer. In addition, Haney was named to the AAU All-America team.

A track standout, Haney holds school records in the 100-meter hurdles, 200 and 400-meters and the high jump. A high school All-American in the hurdles, she finished second at the state championships in the 100 hurdles and 200 meters in the spring of '97.

"Ericka is the type of player we needed in the post," McGraw says. "She's very versatile and can play either at the three or four positions on the floor. Ericka is an athletic player with good post moves and strong defensively skills.

"Ericka and Sherisha fill a lot of needs for us. They are both extremely talented players; we'll be a much more athletic team with them in the lineup. They were are first two choices, so we're pleased they will both be part of our program."
