Lady Crusaders welcome new faces to program
Thursday, July 28, 2005

The North Greenville College women's basketball program is excited about its two incoming freshmen and four redshirt freshmen from last year.

Beth Lowe, hailing from Pisgah High School in Canton, NC signed a National Letter of Intent with the Crusaders. Lowe was an All-Conference selection who averaged 11.5 points and 9 rebounds per game for the Lady Bears in her senior campaign. "Beth will really get after it and help us out. She isn't afraid to get down in the low-post and battle," says Coach Jayne Arledge. "She is a very smart player and makes great decisions, which will be a huge asset to our program."

Also joining the Lady Crusaders this year is Mindy Greenstone out of Collins Hill High School in Georgia. Greenstone helped Collins Hill win the Georgia 5A State Championship and finish the season ranked fifth in the nation. "Mindy was instrumental in their run to the state championship, scoring in double figures multiple times," Arledge noted. "Mindy is a proven winner, can shoot the lights out, and is only going to get better."

Coach Arledge is also excited about four players who were redshirted last year. Amber Bramlett, a 6'1'' transfer from USC Upstate is expected to make a big impact. She is a prolific post player who looks to score, which is just what the Lady Crusaders are needing from her. Robin Warner is a 5'7'' guard from nearby Carolina High School. Warner is a pure shooter and very quick, which makes for a perfect fit for Coach Arledge's system. Amanda Milner, a 6'1'' post player out of Clover High School, is "a beast on the boards, works very hard, and is a very coachable player," says assistant coach Kevin Nicholls. "She is going to be great before she leaves here." Rounding out the new faces that will be seen on the floor this season is Krystle Dendy from Pendleton High School. Arledge says, "Krystle can shoot from anywhere on the floor. She has great range and makes good decisions on the court."
