Head Women's Basketbll Coach Bogie Boggess, announced this week that two more Lady Lakers will  get the opportunity to continue their basketball careers at the next level.

Bethany Dalton will continue to play at West Liberty University in West Liberty, WV. Bethany was the team Co-Captain and started every game last season as a PG/SG for the Lady Lakers.

The Hilltoppers finished 2014-2015 season as the MEC Conference Champions (24-9) and finished their season with a five point loss in the DII Atlantic Region Semi-Finals to the NCAA DII National Champions, California University of Pa. West Liberty Head Coach, Lynn Ullom, is one of the winningest coaches in the history of West Virginia women’s basketball. He will begin his 25th season at the helm having averaged over 20 wins a year throughout his career.

“Beth is a very strong defender with speed and a work ethic that was un-matched at Garrett College. This is a great opportunity for her to learn from one of the best coaching staffs and to compete on one of the best programs in the Mountain East Conference, as well as, the Nation. I am excited for her and wish her much success at West Liberty” said Coach Bogie.

Aleia Biggers-Dewitt will play at Virginia University of Lynchburg in Lynchburg, VA. Aleia was a Co-Captain for the 2014-2015 season and averaged 10.4 points per game. First year Head VUL Women’s Basketball Coach, Brooke Wilkinson, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Dragon’s program and will continue to push Aleia and develop her abilities.

“Aleia played multiple positions for the Lady Lakers but really stood out as a shooting guard for us. I think that this is a great opportunity for Aleia to continue her growth as a player and student. I know that she will work hard to be the best that she can be at VUL” said Coach Bogie
