Lady Saints Basketball Team Signs Olivia Perez & Ryen Hendricks
The Shawnee Community College Saints Women's Basketball team signs Olivia Perez and Ryen Hendricks to a National Letter of Intent for the 2015-2016 team. Olivia attends McClellan High School High School in Little Rock, AR while Ryen attends Sylvan Hills High School in Sherwood, AR. Olivia is the daughter of Genine Perez, and Ryen is the daughter of Amanda and TJ Settles.
Olivia and Ryen both had very successful high school careers. Olivia, a 5'8 guard, was first team All-State in Arkansas and was also first team All Conference. Olivia averaged 12ppg, 8rpg, and 6apg. Ryen, a 5'10" forward, started as a sophomore and junior at Sylvan Hills and averaged 8pts, 3rbs, and 1blk as a sophomore. She increased her numbers to 12pts, 4rbs, and 2blks per game in her junior year. Ryen sat out most of her senior year due to a torn rotator cuff.
Coach Doug Williams, head coach and director of the Arkansas Elite Athletes, had to say about Olivia, "Olivia has outstanding athletic ability and a very high basketball I.Q. She handles the ball very well and passes on an elite level. Olivia has the chance to be a Division 1 player. Coach Williams said about Ryen, "She is a great shooter and very hard worker that has a knack for blocking shots. The sky is the limit when it comes to her upside. Her best basketball is ahead of her."
New women's basketball coach, Luke Scheidecker, said about the girls, "We are very fortunate to get two high character student-athletes who will come in and make an immediate impact in our college. Olivia is very versatile and has great size and ability. She will present match-up problems because of her ability to go inside and out. Ryen is a big time shooter with great size and length. She will be able to stretch the floor at the forward position for us. Her length will also cause problems on the defensive end as well.
