Miami Country Day has high hopes for this girls’ basketball season coming off a state runner-up finish in Class 3A. One of the big reasons is guard Danielle Minott. On Wednesday, Minott was one of several Miami-Dade County athletes in different sports who signed with colleges on the first day of the early signing period.
Minott, who averaged 14 points, seven rebounds and five steals per game last season, signed with Syracuse University.
Southwest will be hosting its annual reunion of former boys’ basketball players Friday to honor coach Tom Moore, who is retiring after this season after 35 years. The reunion will be held in the school cafeteria following the Eagles’ game against Tennessee’s Volunteer High. For more information, contact coach Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ronald Reagan swimmer Isabella Paez verbally committed to Duke University. Paez has placed among the top eight in states since her freshmen year. This year, she placed first in the 100-yard butterfly and 50-yard free relays in regionals. She also placed 26th in the Olympic Trials and represented Venezuela at the Junior World Championships.
