A pair of new players are expected to join the Red Raiders women’s basketball team this fall.
Shippensburg University head women’s basketball coach Kristy Trn has confirmed the recruitment of two student-athletes who have each agreed to attend the university and will suit up for the Raider program in the upcoming season.
These players have signed either national letters of intent (NLIs) or institutional letters expressing their desire to play basketball at Shippensburg. They will join a team that features 14 returning players from the 2019-20 season.
