SLHS Girls Basketball Center Rendle Signs With William & Mary

SLHS basketball player Abigail Rendle signs with William & Mary

South Lakes senior Abigail Rendle signed a letter of intent on Wednesday to play women’s basketball at William & Mary next year.

Rendle, a 6-foot-4 senior, averaged 12 points, 8 rebounds and 7 blocks last season. She has been a four-year starter at South Lakes.

She will be one of nine Seahawks returning to the varsity team that went 23-6 and made it to the VHSL state tournament in 2013.

“To see the process from your freshman year on varsity to signing a letter of intent, I am so proud and honored to have had you represent our basketball program,” said Seahawks coach Christy Winters Scott, herself a former start player at the school who went on to play at University of Maryland.

Rendle is the first girls basketball player in 15 years to sign with an NCAA Division I program, said South Lakes Director of Student Activities Linda Jones.
