Bright future for Nova's April Carson

Big things are happening for Nova's April Carson. The Titans 5-9 junior guard/forward will be featured alongside teammates Clarissa Coddington, Oriana Ellis and Jassany Williams in an upcoming issue of ESPN Rise magazine. On Wednesday, Carson secured her college future early with a verbal commitment to UNC-Greensboro.

"April is a player who spends countless hours in the gym to improver her game, said Nova coach Jason Hively, the Miami Herald's 2008-09 Broward Class 6A-4A girls coach of the year. "Both for herself and her team."

Last season Carson helped lead the Titans to its best record (27-4) in school history and first trip to Lakeland, where they lost to Lake Howell in the Class 5A State championship game.

Carson also considered UCLA, Baylor. Wake Forest and Clemson, among others.
